Grandson 19- depression and anxiety-had to leave university

Posted by ainsleigh @ainsleigh, Mar 2, 2018

My Grandson had to leave U. over a year ago. Eventually found a psychiatrist to treat his anxiety and depression. Is on a therapeutic dose of Paxil which has only helped a bit. Doctor will not make any med changes and he is still not himself. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks to those of you who are responding. I should share something that helped greatly when I was at my worst.
I joined a self help group with others who had also had mental health problems. I eventually became a group leader which gave me a chance to help out. Because of this I tracked down a self help group for young people
for my Grandson but he was unable to go. I am hoping that down the road when he feels better he will reconsider.
I found it such a relief to know that I was not alone and that others struggled too.

I found group work was very helpful, though I haven't been able to find one for a number of years.
