How Do Psychiatrists Treat Depression?

Psychiatrists assess symptoms, history, and overall mental health to diagnose depression accurately. 

Psychotherapy helps individuals identify and address negative thought patterns, fostering coping strategies. 

Psychiatrists may recommend medication to rebalance neurotransmitters, alleviating depressive symptoms. 

ECT involves controlled electric currents to induce brief seizures, often used when other treatments prove ineffective. 

Promoting regular exercise, a balanced diet, and sufficient sleep complements therapeutic interventions, aiding in overall well-being.
