IN CHILDREN AND ADULTS
Treatments for Depression using qEEG guided Neurofeedback.
Everyone experiences sadness as a natural reaction to difficult life events, but depression describes a more profound state of emotional suffering. People experiencing depression feel unable to function, robbed of the joys of life and without energy or purpose.
For some people, depression comes in cycles, for others, it is chronic and unrelenting. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, depression is the leading cause of disability in adults in the U.S., affecting 19.7 million people. According to the Center for Disease Control, one in ten U.S adults take antidepressants at any one time, an increase of 400% since 1988. However, research suggests that antidepressants are only effective for around 30% of the people who take them.
For depression, perhaps more than any other mental health issues, seeing the whole person is central to successful treatment.
