Most people undergoing treatment for mood disorders are utilizing a limited approach that usually and, possibly exclusively, encompasses medications with minimal attention to other psychological and social treatments.
Patients with mood based, mood dysregulation disorders or depression-based disorders only receive periodic medication management with little ongoing day to day involvement from their treating professional. If they do participate in some type of therapy, it is usually with a professional lacking in a deeper understanding of the patient’s problems. Therapy, if offered, is almost always short-term symptom focused treatment.
The result is frequent changing of doctors or therapists which leads to a downward spiral of defeat and failure. Often, treatment must be approved in advance through the involvement of insurance company personnel who are not personally involved with the patient or their family.
Families do not know where to turn.
