In brief: Depression

Most depressions can be treated successfully with psychotherapy and possibly medication as well.
Often depressed people have developed a very negative self voice that drives a person's spirit into the ground. If this applies you will need to discover a more realistic way of talking to yourself as you realize your true worth. Best.

In brief: Most avoid that word

It is most often described as successful treatment - not cure.
And yes, many - even most - depressions can be successfully treated. Your expectations need to be aimed at realistic targets so that you'll be able to evaluate the benefits of your treatment. Talk with a psychotherapist to plan a treatment approach that will be right for you. It may include drugs or not. Work together to be successful.
