Depression Treatment

Depression care that’s effortless

Our depression treatment starts by understanding how you feel.

It’s much more common than many people think.

1 in every 5 Americans experience depression at least once in their lifetime.[1] We’re with you, especially when times are hard.

Signs and Symptoms

Depression has a unique impact on each person.

However, the painful experience of depression remains constant. While the following symptoms ebb and flow in life, in depression they are more persistent:

  •   Feeling helpless or hopeless
  •   Loss of interest in simple pleasures
  •   Change in sleeping and eating patterns
  •   Frequently feeling angry or irritable
  •   Loss of energy and concentration

Diagnosing Depression

An effective treatment plan starts with an accurate diagnosis.

Depression is diagnosed by a doctor who evaluates the signs and symptoms associated with depression, including the mix and severity of symptoms, the context in which they occur, their duration, and their impact on quality of life. We offer a free mental health assessment to help you understand whether symptoms you have are clinically significant.

There’s a clear formula to get better:
Medication + Ongoing Care = Better Mental Health.[2]

Prairie provides care based on this formula.

Genetic testing can improve outcomes

Your genes drive 40-50% of your response to medication.[3][4] Without genetic information, you may experience side effects due to incorrectly dosed medication.

Medications are effective for most people

Roughly two-thirds of people experience improvement by taking medication.[5][6] Our psychiatrists make sure you get appropriate medication and treatment right away.

Collaborative care makes you even better

You are much more likely to become symptom free with a Care Partner continuously working with you and your psychiatrist[7] – more than twice as likely according to a pivotal mental health study.[8]
