Depression

At KetaMIND Clinics, we understand the profound impact that depression can have on an individual’s life. Our clinics specialise in innovative treatments that offer new hope for those suffering from depression, including those diagnosed with Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD) and other mood disorders. 

What is depression? 

Depression is a common and serious medical illness that negatively impacts how you feel, the way you think, and how you act. It is more than just feeling sad or going through a rough patch; it’s a persistent condition that can cause significant emotional and physical problems. 

Depression can lead to numerous emotional and physical problems and can decrease a person’s ability to function at work and at home. 

What are the symptoms of depression?

Symptoms of depression can vary from mild to severe and include a persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” mood accompanied by feelings of hopelessness, pessimism, irritability, guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness. 

Those affected may lose interest in activities they once enjoyed, and experience decreased energy, fatigue, a slowdown in movement, or increased restlessness. Sleep disturbances, such as insomnia or excessive sleeping, appetite and weight changes, and aches, pains, headaches, or digestive problems without a clear physical cause, are also common. In severe cases, individuals may harbour thoughts of death or suicide. 

What causes depression?

Depression does not have a single cause. It can result from a combination of genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors. Depression can occur at any stage but often begins in adulthood. 

Depression is now recognised as occurring in children and adolescents, although it sometimes presents with more prominent irritability than low mood. Major life changes, trauma, or stress can also bring about an episode of depression. 

What sets KetaMIND apart in treating depression? 

Our approach to treating depression revolves around the use of a dissociative anaesthetic, which has emerged as an effective tool in reducing symptoms of severe and chronic depression. This treatment is particularly beneficial for individuals whose depressive symptoms have not responded to traditional therapies. 

How does the treatment work? 

The therapy involves a series of infusions explicitly tailored for mental health applications. This agent works by targeting specific receptors in the brain associated with mood regulation. 

Patients often experience improvements in mood, outlook, and overall well-being shortly after the treatment begins. The prompt action of our infusion therapy can be an important factor in alleviating the distress and impairment associated with severe depression. 

Who can benefit from KetaMIND’s depression treatments?

Our treatments are designed for a wide range of individuals suffering from various forms of depression: 

  • Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD): Patients who have not had sufficient results from conventional antidepressants. 
  • Bipolar Affective Disorder: Especially those experiencing depressive episodes.
  • Chronic Depression: Long-standing depressive symptoms that impact daily functioning.

Comprehensive Care and Support 

At KetaMIND, treatment is just one component of our comprehensive care model. We understand that depression affects every patient differently, and our team is dedicated to providing personalised care plans that include psychological support and lifestyle advice to complement our infusion therapies.
