Hey /adv/
How do I convince my very severely depressed friend to start taking antidepressants? I've suggested the idea to her, but she dismisses it because she feels as if antidepressants aren't a "natural" form of happiness. I care a lot about her and I want her to be as happy as possible and I feel as if this is one of the few and only ways she can truly be happy. Thanks in advance

Why do you feel like that's her only option?

Does she have a shrink?

antidepressants are a lot like birth control. You might have to go through a few different types before you find what works for you.

also its not artificial happiness.
Depression can be caused be inherit problems with our brain, and shit like that. Its not unnatural to have physical laments that lead to a decline in mental health.
She's taking medicine to make this ailment help her be at her 100% health.
Mental health is still part of your health. You can physically %100 healthy, but if you're not mentally healthy, you're not wholly 100% healthy.

in other words, she would take flue medicine to cure a flu right? It's no different with anti-depressants.
you're not "naturally" going to cure the flu with your already existing antibodies. you need some new introduced.

she just needs a new fighting technique for her depression, and antidepressants will just be another form that can help.
