Ask the Experts: Modern Treatments for Depression- September 13, 2016

Depression that doesn’t respond to the standard medication or psychological counseling therapies, may be classified as treatment resistant depression (TRD).Do you or a loved one suffer with depression? Has coping with depression been an ongoing challenge with little relief?

Depression that doesn’t respond to the standard medication or psychological counseling therapies, may be classified as treatment resistant depression (TRD). If you have tried the standard treatments and they have not relieved your symptoms, or your symptoms improve for a time but keep coming back it may be time to ask your doctor about referring you, for a consultation, to a specialist who can diagnose and treats major depression. Members of the TRD program evaluate an individual’s symptoms and current treatment course to see if other newly proven therapies that may offer relief.
