An overview

Depression is a mental health disorder that can result in a consistent anxious mood, feelings of hopelessness, loss of interest in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyable, etc. It can affect the personal and professional relationships of an individual and may also trigger chronic health conditions.

Symptoms can include:

  • Feelings of aggressiveness, anxiousness, and irritability
  • Drinking excessively
  • Engaging in high-risk activities
  • Difficulty staying focused on a task
  • Slow responses during conversations
  • Abnormal sleep patterns, such as insomnia, not sleeping through the night, restless sleep, etc.


There’s no single test that can be used to diagnose depression, but your doctor can check your symptoms and order a psychological evaluation. Usually, they will ask about your sleeping patterns, moods, appetite, activity levels and general thoughts.

As depression can lead to other health problems, physical examination and blood tests may also be performed.

Depression is a co-existing problem with many medical problems and unless depression is treated, the medical problems continue to get complicated

Depression is perhaps the most misunderstood disease which is beginning to become the largest killer amongst psychiatric illnesses. What makes depression so paradoxical? It’s perhaps the ability or inability to understand the meaning of clinical Depression.The presence of some of these symptoms requires the attention of mental health professionals   for diagnosis and depression treatment perhaps in a residential depression treatment centre. Click to read about the causes of depression.

Depression treatment in India is not as widely spread because of lack of mental health professionals in terms of geographical spread. But depression treatment has been recognised as a world problem when the Mental Health Day on the 10th of October in the year 2012 was termed as a global crisis. This has led to the recognition that all depression treatment does not require residential treatment but can be treated by out patient intervention. But the attention of a mental health professional for diagnosis and depression treatment is the need of the hour.

The prognosis and beyond is based on recovery oriented programs both residential and OPD. The initial assessment is done by a qualified clinical psychologist who in the one hour spent initially focuses on case history of the patient. Factors like genetic loading, immediate problems and issues of stress, social participation, usage of addictive substances and such like issues are looked into with the presence of the family members preferably.

After the meeting is over for the depression treatment, our team of psychiatrists are consulted to identify whether medication is required or not. For depression treatment, a large number of antidepressants formulations are available in the market on presentation of a valid prescription.

A new treatment method for depression treatment is NeurofeedbackBiofeedback. The basic philosophy of this method in depression treatment is to monitor the negative brain impacts on the bodily functions during the episode. Once this is documented, the patient is taught to control and temperate these negative symptoms under the guidance of a psychologist so that he is able to control them to manageable laid out parameters. Two non-medicinal approaches to depression treatment are supported employment and supported living. They are unique to depression treatment centres such as the Cadabams Group of Residential Treatment Centres. They are as the word supported signifies are intended to control the social isolation of the patient and tap his latent potential to bring him on the path of self growth. The patient is put in working environment where he comes into contact with customers and is taken away from his negative thought environment and propels him into a world of self-belief, self-esteem and self-growth..

Supported Living is a concept of getting functional residents to live together away from the main campus with increased freedom and responsibility. This is to prepare them to live in reintegrated and inclusive environment with their family post discharge. It is no coincidence that the all residents living in supported living conditions are also working in supported employment conditions.

Depression is a pernicious disease and may require short to long term treatment in Depression treatment centre like Cadabam’s which is unique in depression treatment centres in India.  Not only does it consider to be a psychiatric condition but also an addiction cause and effect syndrome, which is treated differently in its De-addiction unit. How do you treat special children who require depression treatment Cadabam’s has an answer to this also. What do you do to clients who require non invasive rTMS treatment? The answer is go to the Cadabams neuropsychiatry multi specialty hospital in the city.

To conclude, depression is a problem reaching global dimensions but the positive side is that there are residential units with a battery of therapeutic interventions, as is the condition with Cadabams, that not only offer hope but a curative and treatable option.
