Depression is an awful disease and there is no one size fits all, but I do know the times when my spouse has tried to ween himself off medication or messed with the doses he has ended up in the hospital. I believe the homeopathic approach may work for some, but for others, anti-depressants, ECT treatment, etc. are literally life savers. I think it’s difficult for anyone to pass judgement unless you have seen it or lived it first hand and adding to the stigma of mental illness is learning to accept that some people need different, more or less treatment then others. Acceptance is key.
