Depression Clinics in South Africa

Depression Clinics in South Africa

It is not easy getting the right help for depression and finding help for your depro, never mind trying to find good Depression Clinics in South Africa. I mean let’s face it. A psychiatric treatment centre experience isn’t for everyone, and most people don’t particularly want to wait for a rock bottom, a burn out or a break down before they get help. So they go to the opposite end of the spectrum and eventually try a few counselling sessions with a life coach or psychologist. But tough emotional problems require real, adequate and tough interventions.

People notoriously do not look after their emotions. Some of us not at all. Wise and intelligent people, some who are super successful in business get taken down by themselves in the end, not by any external enemies or competitors. Research shows that today we are more likely to self destruct than to be attacked by a perp. We are more likely to die by our won hand, than that of a stranger or any other external enemy like Covid19 for example. What we are learning, fast, is that we are the problem. If you don’t take the time to fix your emotions and work on your metal state, finishing equilibrium and balance in all things – you’re likely, yes likely today to suffer a mental or emotional break.

A wellness retreat in South Africa, is not what a wellness retreat is overseas. Here, people see a wellness retreat as a place to get a massage and do hot stone therapy for a couple of days. Body pampering is not going to cure depression, anxiety or even long term stress. It’s a great tool, yes. but if you have suffered depression, let’s say for a couple of years now, odds are you need what one of the Depression Clinics in South Africa offer. Not massage and aromas only. But serious therapy that works on ALL four aspects of yourself. Importantly not just your body. That’s like putting a band aid over your emotional problems. Depression Clinics in South Africa must work on body, mind, emotions and your spirituality. The latter is rare, but seemingly necessary. Spiritual work is not a priority in a psychiatric clinic where their work is generally focusing on mental health and well-being.

Choosing appropriate Depression Clinics in South Africa

If you have a clinical issue and anything is an emergency. Get hold of your doctor and get the directional advise you need. Don’t leave it. These things get worse as our thinking becomes more distorted and obsessional.

If you’ve suffered from something like depression or anxiety or addictions long term, about two years or more. Get into a treatment program of 10-90 days. It may be the best investment you ever make. These things are progressive – they all tend to get worse. Then treatment is more intense, longer and will cost more.

Don’t stay on heavy medications for onger than six months without getting a second opinion from your doctor, or better still a different doctor. Most of the pain, mood and other intervention medication has a bad rep for causing more problems than solutions if abused or over-used. Most of the drugs used at home or at Depression Clinics in South Africa or especially psychiatric clinics are getting a bad rap. So double check with a good doc. Either way use them for shorter period and along with ongoing therapy, or why would anything change?

Take a break and take time out to smash addictions, depression, anxiety and personality and mood disorders and issues at the core. Don’t stay stuck.
