Managing depression

Overview:

Depression affects around 1 in 10 people at some point in their lives and is a very real illness where people feel persistently sad for weeks or months. Debilitating symptoms can include feelings of helplessness, crying, anxiety, low self-esteem, a lack of energy and sleeping difficulties. However, depression affects people in different ways and therefore symptoms can vary between individuals. It can interfere with a person’s ability to function, feel pleasure or take an interest in things. Importantly, with the correct treatment and support, most people can make a full recovery.

Pharmacy professionals are well placed to support people with depression. This webinar recording will give an overview of the condition, its symptoms and diagnosis as well as increasing understanding of its evidence based management.

  • Explain the symptoms of depression and the basis for diagnosis
  • Describe the evidence-based pharmacological and psychological recommendations for the management of depression

  • Discuss the condition, choice of medication, duration and withdrawal treatment with patients
