Treatment for Depression

Depressed but convinced nothing will help?

Depression can be treated.

Researchers at the Australian National University have reviewed the scientific evidence for a range of conventional and alternative and self help 'treatments' for depression. Some treatments are effective, some are promising but require more study, and others are not supported by scientific evidence.

Note that the date of last review is displayed for each treatment listing.
Please be aware that important evidence about the treatment may have been published after this date.
