There is no need to go to a medical doctor for treatment. One can cure depression by will power, a holiday, or at times by taking a peg or two of alcohol to lift one's spirits.

Fact

Many communities continue to believe in such home remedies. Will power cannot cure depression. A depressed person experiencing lack of pleasure in his surroundings will not enjoy his holidays either. Alcohol may worsen the depression. Depression should be treated with prescribed medicines and social support of the family and community.
