Version: 2010

EXPERIENCE OF CARE

This chapter provides an overview of the experience of people with depression and their families/carers. In the first two sections are first-hand personal accounts written by people with depression and carers, which provide some experiences of having the diagnosis, accessing services, having treatment and caring for someone with depression. It should be noted that these accounts are not representative of the experiences of people with depression and therefore can only ever be illustrative. This is followed by a qualitative analysis of transcripts of people with depression from the Healthtalkonline website (www.healthtalkonline.org) and a review of the qualitative literature of the experience of people with depression. There is then a summary of the themes emerging from the personal accounts, the Healthtalkonline transcripts and the literature review, which provides a basis for the recommendations, which appear in the final section.

THE PHARMACOLOGICAL AND PHYSICAL MANAGEMENT OF DEPRESSION THAT HAS NOT ADEQUATELY RESPONDED TO TREATMENT, AND RELAPSE PREVENTION

In this chapter, sections marked by asterisks (**__**) are from the previous guideline and have not been updated except for style and minor clarification.
