Modes of treatment:

There are many effective treatments for moderate-severe depression. The healthcare provider may provide treatments such as behavioral activation, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT), or certain antidepressants may also be prescribed with caution to people having suicidal tendencies.

For mild symptoms psychological therapy can also help, like 5-6 sessions with your psychiatrist will be more than enough for treating mild depression symptoms.
