St. Louis, MO (PressExposure) August 02, 2006 -- Harvard Medical School published on August 1, 2006 a fifty-page special report titled "Understanding Depression". Early recognition of the signs of depression is more common than in the past. New treatments, such as drugs targeted at specific changes in brain chemistry, can cut short otherwise crippling episodes. A variety of drugs and therapies can also be combined to boost the likelihood of a full remission. This report provides information on these and other helpful therapies. Reading it and sharing it with loved ones might help improve your life--or the life of someone close to you. And, because depression remains a leading cause of suicide, the information might even be lifesaving.

This report is very informative, provides easy-to-understand explanations about this baffling disease and discusses various treatments. This valuable report was prepared by the editors of Harvard Health Publications.
