Major depression is treated most effectively with BOTH medication and therapy
Going off medication can be potentially dangerous and should be done only after consulting the entire team involved in your child’s care of this disorder (Parents, Therapists, Child, and Physician)
We do not manage antipsychotic medication without regular consultation from a psychiatrist.
