Children treated for depression aged 5, though is medication the answer?
Prescriptions for Fluoxetine, more commonly known as Prozac, have risen 26% in Oxfordshire and 13% in Berkshire from April to September last year.
Treatment for depression
MPs recently announced an extra £22m to tackle child mental health treatment.The word treatment seems to be the administering of mood stabilizing drugs where other treatments such as EFT, or homeopathy could benefit any child suffering from depression. Group counselling support sessions can be a very good alternative being with other children that have their ailments.
Though I believe a good supporting tool would be one of the therapies mentioned above as well as group yoga for the mind workshops which are aimed at children.
