Hey, Welcome to A Cure For Depression! Thanks for calling by.
I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety over 18 years ago, I wanted to know more about my condition so I started working for a leading Mental Health charity in the UK supporting people with enduring mental health problems to live independently in society.
I have seen many treatments from prescribed medication to complementary medicine. Some do work and alleviate the symptoms of depression, but of course, some do not.
Most professionals will prescribe drugs and offer nothing else, but I found out for myself that it is possible to be drug-free and find a long lasting cure for depression.
NEVER stop taking prescribed medication without speaking to your professional. ALWAYS check with your professional before starting or adding complementary therapies.
IF YOU ARE IN CRISIS NOW PLEASE CONTACT THE SAMARITANS OR CALL THE EMERGENCY SERVICES 999 (UK) 911 (USA).

HOW CAN I HELP?
I have been through the good, the bad and the down right ugly in Depression treatments and I want to be able to share these stories with you and the ways I managed to control my depression initially with complimentary practices and then to become drug-free.
Many professionals only ever reach for the pen and prescribe medication and they never seem to empower people with mental health problems to try alternative therapies. Many therapies can be used along side prescribed medication and some show an increase in medication effectiveness when they are used together.
So I want to share the best and worst of these alternate and complimentary therapies with you to help and empower you to get in control of your depression. I will try my best to help and offer advice where ever I can.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
