Depression

Up to 20% of the population suffers from a depressive episode once in a lifetime. Depression profoundly changes the whole person in terms of feelings, thinking, behaviour and body functions.

Another disease that is linked to strong mood swings is the bipolar disorder, formerly known as manic-depressive disease. Those affected suffer from depressive and hypomanic or manic episodes.

Help with your depression

Depression is usually treatable. A wide range of modern medication, various psychotherapeutic procedures, light therapy, sleep deprivation, electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) are available.

Crucial is the ability of therapists to recognize the patient in his/her entirety as a single and unique individual. On the basis of an empathetic relationship, an individual treatment plan is created, which can also be adjusted at any time, if necessary.


It is not uncommon with the correct combination of these different treatment methods to achieve the desired success.
