Re: Mental health issue

Sorry to hear your situation.I hope your son's situation gets better.

One of the best natural approach to treat depression is be physically engaged and at the same time engaging in meditation techniques. The only way is for the person suffering depression to get a will to overcome it and to initiate meditation techniques.

There are good meditation centres in Switzerland. If one focuses on breathing exercises, there will be a significant improvement in mental agility and feeling of joy over the feeling of depression.

I wish your son a good recovery.

Did you ever experience depression yourself?? I rather doubt what you are saying.

Good job suggesting a course of treatment without even seeing the patient, understanding the situation, evaluating how severe or persistent the symptoms are, what would be a practical solution in this case, etc, etc, etc. /sarcasm

You don't do this for a living, aren't you?

Re: Mental health issue

Unless it's a depression, leaving him totally alone may improve the situation. It might be some sort of burn-out. I've seen the same situation amongst my relatives. The guy just came to conclusion that he doesn't want to work anymore. However when the wife moved out with the kids and he was left really alone he came back to life in two months, made the contact with the family and took a job. The problem is that when the family is around in the house that might be enough to satisfy basic social connectedness. Unfortunately YMMV

Re: Mental health issue

So sorry to hear this. As I think others have mentioned, right now it is probably important that the children, wife and you also get the support needed because it is really hard to see someone you love with depression and be unable to help.

Wishing you all the best

Re: Mental health issue

I want to say thank you to everyone who has replied. It is actually a bit of a comfort. After over 2 years now of trying everything from compassionate sympathy to nagging to threatening, begging, crying, playing tough it is so hard to know what to do. Financially everything is a mess and the stress on myself and his family is tremendous. How his wife hasn't given in I have no idea. She is so strong.
Again thankyou, for both your comments and advice.

I have experienced some close relatives and friends go through severe depression and have seen atleast two instances when they made full recovery when they practiced sports and meditation techniques which immensely helped them to overcome the situation and to completely stop the medications that were prescribed for the condition.

It has been more than 5 years now and the people I know are living a joyful life.
I pray that Seoul7's son makes a full recovery and leads a joyful life.

SwissPea. I am also in Australia and was hoping there was a similar programme in Zurich my DIL could contact. Unfortunately, after contributing for many years he refused to apply for the unemployment insce. His attitude was that it was dole bludging. Wouldn't listen to advice about it. the trouble is that his wife had to leave Switz. in order to get work that would support her and allow her to send some money to support the kids. He looks after them and well but that's it. cleaning, communicating, socialising doesn't come into it.
So, you're in Australia.

How on Earth do you expect a forum like EF to solve these problems?

If you suspect that your son needs help, then you need to ensure that he goes to a psychiatrist to get it. I don't get from your posts what the situation is.

Can you briefly explain why he doesn't do this, and it might lead to input that can help.

Re: Mental health issue

seoul7, you need more help/advice than you can receive on this forum, as well-intentioned as it may be.

Please see a psychiatrist who can explain to you what is happening to your son, and how you can deal with it to help him.
