When someone living with depression does not get adequate relief from at least two different antidepressant medications, it’s known as treatment-resistant depression (TRD). TRD affects 1 in 3 people with depression – that’s roughly 100 million people around the world.
TRD has a huge burden on patients and their families, but their stories often go unspoken and unheard.
Trish, Dee, and Eric are peers from the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance. In this video, they tell us about their experiences of living with TRD. We’re grateful for them helping us raise awareness of what it’s like to live with TRD – watch the video to understand more.
