I'm based in Ireland but I guess we don't have the best resources for this type of issue so my GP referred me to this site for info on lowmood/depression/cbt/SSRI's. My GP thinks Cognitive Behavioural Therapy would be useful but with my mood at the moment doesn't think I'll engage very well so wants to put me on SSRI's first. I was put on anti-depressants as a teenager but I felt they made me worse and was taken off them after two weeks, I now realise that probably didn't help but I really want to get a sense of whether they do help? I'm not expecting miracles and know they will take some time but after all this can I expect any changes/improvements? Thanks in advance for any help/advice given.
