The high prevalence of depression in the world and the heavy burden of this life-threatening mental illness necessitate a proven approach to its treatment to provide the most effective care for those suffering from it.
The guidelines presented in this workshop are based on guidelines for the treatment of adult patients with depressive disorders developed by leading Western professional associations and health care institutions.
This presentation will cover a wide range of relevant aspects of psychiatric and psychotherapeutic treatment, from general support to recommendations for work at different stages of treatment and work with different categories of patients.
