Here's what's happening on the HealthyPlace site this week:

What Is It Like Living with Major Depression?
It's estimated that 15 million (5-8%) American adults suffer with major depression. It's the most serious form of depression and can require very aggressive treatment. For instance, Julia writes us to say "major depression kills a person's spirit."

In sharing his major depression experience with [sign in to see URL], Barry laments: " Imagine if you are carrying a 200 lb backpack and then having your saddest life experience dominating your every thought."

This week, we have several stories of living and coping with major depression. Some are success stories, others are fighting the battle or decided to stop fighting and just live with major depression.

More info on Major Depression:
  1.. Signs, Symptoms, Causes of Major Depression
  2.. Treatment of Major Depression
  3.. Gold Standard of Treating Depression: Award-winning mental health author, Julie Fast, maintains that what it really takes to effectively treat depression and manage your depression symptoms is a comprehensive plan.
  4.. Depression Treatment Videos
  5.. Videos on Depression
But what happens when you have major depression that won't go away? You've tried every depression medication under the sun, in every dosage, combination of psychiatric medications, therapy, and yet, the heavy feeling of major depression remains.

"What To Do When You Have Treatment-Resistant Depression" On HealthyPlace TV
Our guest survived a severe form of treatment-resistant depression. Find out how. Share your opinion and get insight into effective ways to manage your depression from our Medical Director, Dr. Harry Croft.

This Tuesday night, April 21. The show starts at 5:30p PT, 7:30 CT, 8:30 ET and airs live on our website.

  a.. TV Show Blog with this week's show info
  b.. Dr. Croft's blog post on "What is Treatment-Resistant Depression?" (It's an interesting read because Dr. Croft reports that some doctors really don't know how to effectively treat major depression leaving their patients feeling that they are treatment-resistant. And some patients don't follow through with their depression treatments.)
Sometimes, treating severe depression takes extraordinary measures. Here are a few:

  a.. Increasing the Effectiveness of Antidepressants
  b.. ECT for Severe and Treatment-Resistant Depression
  c.. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) for Treatment of Depression
  d.. Vagus Nerve Stimulation for Treating Depression (VNS Therapy)

In the second half of the show, you get to ask Dr. Harry Croft, your personal mental health questions.
