Managing Your Depression

A Closer Look at Medications and Finding the Right Balance

Major depressive disorder, even the toughest cases, can be treated.

On Wednesday, March 13 at 1pm ET, join us for a new live video educational program for families managing major depressive disorder (MDD). Finding the best treatment plan often involves trial and error, so it is really important that people who have MDD and their loved ones know what their options are and how to ask doctors the right questions, give feedback, advocate for their needs, and feel empowered to participate in their care. Hear from leading clinicians and patient advocates about:

  • Why it’s important to participate in the decisions with healthcare professionals
  • How to bring up your concerns, questions, and preferences about medications
  • When to speak up if a medicine isn’t working, or has really bad side effects
  • The different risks and benefits of different MDD medicines
  • Additional resources offered by pharmacies and advocacy groups

DBSA's Communications and Programs Vice President, Kevin Einbinder, joins a panel of experts from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy at Rutgers University, and peers to help those living with MDD feel empowered to participate in their care.
