Depression Treatment

Depression is a mental health condition affecting how you feel, think, and behave. It’s very common, but no single depression treatment works for all. Our team at Prime Psychiatry specializes in depression treatment, offering many therapeutic options to ease your symptoms and improve your well-being. To learn more about depression treatment, call the office in Frisco, Texas, or schedule an appointment online today. Telepsychiatry appointments are also available.

What is depression?

Depression is a serious mood disorder that causes persistent feelings of sadness and hopelessness. These feelings disrupt how you think and behave, affecting your daily activities like sleeping, eating, and working.

Depression affects people of all ages, including children and teens. 

Prime Psychiatry is a psychiatric clinic that specializes in diagnosing and treating depression. If you or someone you love struggles with depression, our team can help. 

Who needs depression treatment?

Anyone with symptoms of depression can benefit from treatment at Prime Psychiatry. Common symptoms of depression include:

  • Persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and pessimism
  • Low energy
  • Fatigue
  • Disinterest in activities
  • Withdrawal from friends and family
  • Anxiety
  • Sleeping more or less than usual
  • Eating more or less than usual
  • Frequent aches and pains
  • Thoughts of death or suicide

For a depression diagnosis, you must have daily depression symptoms that last most of the day for two or more weeks. However, you don’t have to have all symptoms for a depression diagnosis. 

Our team at Prime Psychiatry conducts a psychiatric evaluation at your first consultation to fully understand your emotional, mental, and cognitive well-being and make a diagnosis.

Even if you don’t fully fit into the criteria for a depression diagnosis, if you have a low mood, depression treatment at Prime Psychiatry can help you feel better. 

What are the types of depression treatment?

Our team takes an individualized approach to care. When it comes to depression treatment, no single method works for all. However, our team utilizes many tools to improve your mood, including:

Counseling

Counseling is one of the primary treatments used to help you understand your depression and develop skills for improving how you feel. Our team provides individual, family, and group counseling. 

We also offer telepsychiatry, providing the counseling you need without having to come to the office. 

Medication management

Medication management may also be part of your depression treatment plan. There are many types of antidepressants, and the team works closely with you, helping you find the prescription and dose that provides the best relief from your symptoms. 

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)

At Prime Psychiatry, our team also offers TMS therapy for patients suffering from treatment-resistant depression. This is a type of depression that fails to improve with medication and counseling.

TMS is a noninvasive therapy that stimulates your brain using electromagnetic fields, relieving depression symptoms.
