What is treatment-resistant depression?

Treatment-resistant depression occurs when a patient has undergone one or several evidence-based treatments for depression (such as taking antidepressant medication) without result. You could say that treatment-resistant depression is a form of depression where standard treatments aren’t enough. So, if you’ve had treatment for depression, but still experience the same symptoms, you may have treatment-resistant depression.
