I agree with dr berkowitz.
In addition, there is no scientic proof of herbal effectivenss or how safe these products. Be careful and discuss such therapies with a trained child professional.

In brief: No

Any herbs have been shown to be less effective than the prescribed medications that are used for depression.
Often these herbs have small amounts or imperfect forms of the pharmaceuticals they are supposed to replace.
