Depression Section 12
The question here is: How can you manage circumstances for a severely depressed patient, when hospitalization isn’t an option and outpatient psychotherapy isn’t enough?
We have begun to address this issue in Depression Section 12 on the Treatment Maps site, with some issues about sending a person to a day treatment program. You can see what is there by clicking on the link.
However, this is only an outline, and a great deal more detail is needed in order for the material to be helpful.
It also may not be the only alternative for a patient in this condition.
What can you suggest to fill out the outline or add alternative treatments?
