Hi all,

I am writing to look for advices.
I have been struggling with major depression for the past 3 years. I tried a few therapists but nothing available in the country where I live seem to be helpful. Unfortunately options are very limited here.
I am currently unemployed, struggling with finances. I understand the importance of therapy, but I really do not know how and where to start.
Do you know any effective service online that could help?

Hello
How are you doing?
If depression is mild to moderate, exercise (not heavy) and therapy tend to be helpful. But when depression is severe, we have to think about med. i’m in the US. I see many online therapy sites but I never used it before. Chatting is helpful to vent our emotional stress, but it’s different from treatment.

Hello
How long has been on med? Psychotropic meds take time to kick in.
