Depression is a serious issue. And may require more than a "one time effort" to restore an individual to a productive state of mind. The primary block to overcoming depression may even be the Free Will of the depressed individual. It is a widely held belief that: Anyone may Change Their Mind.

Our work is effective - on all sorts of concerns... But from the perspective of the depressed, even hope of recovery seems illusive. Depression clouds the mind of those so situated. There are those who believe they have made so many wrong choices, their 'victim' status seems irreversible (of course it is reversible). And - in the midst of depression there is a lack of motivation to get better, because - to the depressed individual, "what's the point?". By definition, depression is NOTmotivation.
This is often frustrating to those whose loved one is in such a state. We will never "give up" on anyone - and this is a serious issue. If you are experiencing this, "we can help you with that". In general - everyone is special, unique and one size does NOT fit all. ..for example -
Post Partum Depression
When pregnancy occurs, the mother's endocrine (hormonal) system must ramp up to supply the new life form within her, as well as to provide her own physical body with additional hormones to handle the new burden with which it is coping. This "peaking up" is a gradual thing which takes several months, and therefore the harmonizing and balancing system has no trouble in keeping the hormones evenly and properly supplied as required.
At birth all this is changed in a matter of hours. The various endocrine glands must cease their abnormal production and retreat to the normal output for a single unencumbered body. The need for this sudden reversal comes as a shock to the entire system; the amazing thing is that most women adjust back to normal and overcome their depressed feelings in so short a time, usually not more than three or four days. Some do not, however, and therein lies a problem which frustrates the medical profession.
