Mood disorders and their treatment
Below are a series of articles about mood disorders and their treatments for patients and carers:
Some of these articles are written by Jane Eastham (JE): Jane is a Part time voluntary Research associate at Newcastle University and is not a psychiatrist or a psychologist and has no formal psychiatric training. Jane suffers with long term Difficult-to-Treat Depression and is a patient at the Regional Affective Disorders Service (RADS) in Newcastle Upon Tyne. These articles have been written over several years and have been edited by Professor H McAllister-Williams with ideas from Samantha Bulmer (research nurse) and some illustrations have been added by Hannah Cahill (psychology student). I would like to thank Dr D Cousins for his assistance in modifying an image. I would also like to thank Dr S Watson, L Davidson and H Hackett for their advice throughout these articles. I hope you find these articles of use. - Jane
