Can you tell me if depression really is a chemical imbalance, how is it possible that talk therapy alone can cure it?

3 doctors agree

In brief: Depression

Believe it or not - effective talking therapy can slowly work toward balancing brain chemicals.
Psychotropic medications are however, usually faster at achieving balance.
