discussion. Several steps are vital in evaluating the treatment of depression of an individual. The best media, in this case, maybe through direct communication with the patient and noting down the possible causes of the depression so that one can find a solution to such a condition. The information that the patient gives is more important since it reveals precisely the situation and problem of the patient. The next step is evaluating the available modes of treatment of such a condition (Osei-Bonsu et al. 2017) . The treatment will largely depend on the source or cause of depression. The first important step in the treatment of this psychological disorder is to ensure that the environment is conducive to the patient. Administering some of the medicine specified to reduce stress and depression is one of the most effective ways of handling such a disorder, and it ensures the condition of the depression is not worse. Therefore, by application of all that, then the psychological disorder will become less harmful to the patient (Levin et al. 2017) .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
