Advice: Depression and Chemical Imbalance

Dear Chereen, 

Assalamu Alaikum! Sister I have a question, how do I treat depression and chemical imbalance in the mind?
Dear Friend,

Wa Alaykum Assalam! When it comes to chemical imbalance or depression, seeking professional help is the way to go. You could get what you need in a few sessions, or end up with 10+ sessions in order to get better help. If your mental health is more severe, then you might have to go from seeing a psychotherapist to seeing a psychiatrist for possible medication. This is nothing to be ashamed of, or something you feel makes you look bad. Sometimes a life experience triggers a mental illness, and depression happens when life doesn’t want to be kind. Seeking help is your best solution. It’ll help you reconnect with yourself and get closer to happiness, God willing.
