It is said that some Native Americans in Alaska have scores of different words in their native language for what we simply call “snow.” It also seems to me that the word depression should be replaced by several different words because there are so many different types. So trying to understand the best depression cures is a little like asking, “What is the cure for someone who says, ‘I feel terrible!'”
Depression cures vary greatly because the different types of clinical depression vary greatly. A chronic, low grade depression known as dysthymia is rarely cured if it is primarily genetic in nature. A postpartum depression can piggyback on earlier, unresolved trauma and loss. The painful memories can be resolved but postpartum depression has to be managed instead of cured. These are just a few examples in which depression cures can be complex and even impossible to cure with conventional treatments.
