My brother has always been the life & soul of the party, constantly cracking jokes & making everyone laugh! Then he changed, he went in on himself & just become really down. After a while he opened up to us as a family & told us he thought he might have depression. We went to the doctors straight away, he was given antidepressants & received cognative behavioural therapy. We thought all was well. Then he started experiencing horrendous side effects from the medication so we had to switch the tablets. He changed his lifestyle, going to the gym everyday, got into boxing, eating healthy etc, he thought because he was feeling better than he had been in ages he would stop taking the tablets as the side effects had come back again! He assumed he'd be ok! He was wrong! Now he's at rock bottom again! He has new tablets but he's just waiting for the side effects to come back after a couple of months! The only help the NHS can give him is more CBT & very basic counselling which we don't think will cut it . I've done some research from the things he's told me & the issues he has & he needs 'dynamic interpersonal counselling'. There is a place near us which charges £145 for an assessment & they estimate he will need around 16 sessions at £110 each. We want him to have the therapy he needs as obviously you can't put a price on the quality of life of someone you love, but its unaffordable for him. Whilst my mum & I can help him out, we cant afford to cover the whole £2,000. So we are looking to see if anyone can help out with the cost. Thanks in advance, it's greatly appreciated!
