The Answers:

Whether your concern is for yourself, or someone you care about, treatment for depression has already begun for you!

Step One: Learn about the problem

By taking the time to seek out this information, and read it, you are already engaged in the first step toward dealing with a mood disorder such as depression – facing the problem head on, accessing information about how depression presents, and how to get treatment for it.

You have done well to get here!

Congratulations - the journey into recovery has already begun, though it may not feel that way!

Taking that first step in acknowledging that there may be a problem is often the darkness before the dawn.

Step two: Seek professional assessment, advice & support

Recovery from depression, and the impact it has on so many aspects of your life, relationships and work, is not something to undertake on your own.

A feature of the problem is that you will have tried to deal with it on your own for a long time before seeking help, with limited success.

Reaching out to talk about the problem with people who specialize in the treatment of depression is the next step.

To make this step as easy as we can, SPP offers a free comprehensive assessment during which the issues are discussed either face to face or over the phone, and you learn about the treatment options and resources.

South Pacific Private has a professional multi disciplinary team of psychiatrists, psychologists, general practitioners, registered nurses, psychotherapists and counsellors, who work together to offer holistic care, and liaison with your local health professionals ensuring that you have a continuum of care before and after treatment at South Pacific Private.

The Family Education & Support Group

Families are often so willing to do anything they can to help the person they care about who is caught in a cycle of depression! Mood disorders such as depression impact the whole family.

Both current research, and our experience and outcome studies, tell us that clients embrace recovery from depression more effectively when family members also have the opportunity to engage in educational and support programs designed to meet their needs.

Step Three: Integrated Treatment

South Pacific Private has a comprehensive approach to the treatment of depression. All our treatment programs treat the underlying core issues, trauma, and family dynamics, which may have fuelled the development of the present problems, at the same time as addressing the depressive symptoms.

Our clients are taken on a therapeutic journey of discovery where you gain greater understanding of how your life has reached this point, and the steps that will get you back on the road to wherever you want to go in your life.

Step Four: Living in Recovery from depression

Finding your road to recovery from depression is a very personal journey. When you are in still in the middle of dealing with the issues and problems that have prompted you to seek this information, it can be very challenging to even glimpse what life may be like after the depression has lifted.

Recovery sneaks up on you through a series of shifts in mood, insights and realizations, as you attend your treatment program that has been designed by specialists who understand the journey you must take to effectively address the depressive symptoms, and the accompanying thinking problems and relationship patterns.

Depression Realities

Recovery from a depression is likely to be more successful when underlying causes and environmental factors are addressed at the same time as the presenting symptoms and problems are treated.

Managing depression can be challenging, exhausting and risky when attempting it alone. For this reason professional support and treatment is strongly recommended.

Depression is most effectively treated by health professionals, (Psychiatrists, Psychologists, therapists and nurses), who specialize in treating mood disorders such as depression.

If you would like to speak to someone who understands the challenges of living with depression, and who can discuss the your particular situation and treatment needs, we suggest that you call our assessment team who will offer a free and confidential preliminary chat, or full assessment if that is your preference.
