Rick had struggled on and off with depression for years. He felt that after his first bout of depression, his brain was more primed to experience another episode. And from what he’d read, psychological research backed up that feeling. Rick was open to trying a prescription antidepressant medication like an SSRI, but he had a lot of questions about it. He’d also like to talk to a professional therapist about what seemed to trigger his depressive episodes and find cognitive strategies for preventing them. The trouble was, Rick was a traveling nurse and he never stayed in one town for too long. He didn’t want to start a meaningful relationship with a psychiatrist or a therapist and then have to get to know a new provider a few months later. He didn’t feel like he had any viable, long-term options for getting help for his depression. What should Rick do?
