If you think you’re depressed, and you feel that you need additional assistance during your journey back to a happy, fulfilling life, you can find support from the following sources:

  • Your doctor can assess your condition and decide whether you may benefit from medication or need support from other mental-health professionals.

  • CBT psychotherapists can be helpful in tackling depression. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is the treatment of choice for depression (as recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence – NICE), because of the overwhelming evidence that it works. Make sure that you choose an accredited therapist.

  • Other therapists or counsellors can be helpful in offering alternatives to CBT. Many different forms of therapy and treatment exist, including some dubious or untested therapies, so do be careful. Ensure that you work with a therapist who’s registered with a professional body and has been properly trained.

  • The Internet can be an excellent resource if used with caution. Please remember that the Internet has a lot of bad as well as good sites and can never replace professional help.
