Treatment-Resistant Depression Show Introduction

April 19, 2009 admin

Treatment resistant depression is reality for many people despite breakthroughs in depression treatments. If your depression treatment isn't working, read this.

Great advances have been made in the treatment of depression . The advent of SSRI's like Prozac continue to change the lives of millions. Unfortunately, a significant percentage of depression sufferers do not respond to antidepressant medication and modern psychotherapy either completely or partially and are still affected by sadness, disinterest in activities, and sometimes suicide.

If you are suffering from treatment-resistant depression, it can seem like a tunnel without an ending. How do you know what goals to even set for your treatment? For anyone suffering from depression, the goal is the same: end the symptoms.

During the live HealthyPlace TV show, airing Tuesday April 22nd at 7:30 PM CST/ 8:30 PM ET, Dr. Harry Croft,'s Medical Director, will share several treatment tips for those who haven't responded to the standard depression treatments. (You might also want to read The Gold Standard for Treating Depression - authoritative information on all aspects of depression treatment.)

Our guest will be sharing her true story of surviving depression (a very treatment-resistant form). You will be able to participate during the live show by asking our guest and Dr. Croft questions through the chat screen next to the show player.

We will also be discussing the use of ECT in treatment-resistant depression . For those suffering from this form of severe depression, ECT (or electroconvulsive therapy) has shown a remarkable ability to immediately resolve many symptoms of tough to treat depression. Many people often misunderstand ECT and associate it with its much less scientific predecessors.

During the second half of the show, you will be able to ask Dr. Croft any mental health question. If you would like to share your personal mental health story, please create a video, post it on YouTube, and email the link to info [at] We might air it during our live show.

Thank you for making the HealthyPlace Mental Health TV Show a great success and helping those suffering in silence with your participation. As always, I look forward to reading all your emails and comments. HealthyPlace TV airs live Tuesdays at 7:30 PM Central/ 8:30 PM Eastern on

For years and years I have taken meds to help me with my disorder. My world has shrunk due to avoidance, and I mean literally shrunk as I do not drive beyond my town and I will not be a passenger with anyone except the few people who know of my disorder.

Hi, I suffered with depression for more than 10 years and I was diagnosed as anti-depressant resistant. I found a meditation program that has helped me tremendously along with self-help books and therapy, I am now depression & anxiety free! I have been off medication for 5 years! The meditation program is from a company called Centerpointe.
