  • Q&A with Australian Health Practitioners

    What should I do when all treatments have failed?

    I was initially diagnosed with Post Concussion Syndrome following a workplace head injury 18 months ago. Since then my depression has become chronic along with insomnia, trouble with concentration, procedural memory, decreased noise tolerance & suicidal ideation & an attempt.

    I have been hospitalised both voluntarily & involuntarily for a total of 6 months since the accident. I have tried just about all the antidepressants available, had 12 sessions of ECT, see a psychologist weekly & have just started a DBT program.

    Every hospital psychiatrist has diagnosed a different condition including major depression, PTSD, adjustment disorder and now borderline personality but the criteria for that just doesn’t resonate with me. No treatment has made me feel any better. What should I do next? I feel I’ve been put in the “too hard basket”.
