I admit that it is getting harder and harder dealing with my mother's depression. At first, it was very mild and occasional therapies were very effective. But that was 5 years ago and the situation now is quite different. She is not admitting it,. But I know that she is even thinking about suicide. What do you think about Deep Brain Stimulation? Would that help her?

It all depends. Deep Brain stimulation is said to be effective with several neurological conditions, by electro stimulating of the brain areas that are supposed to be responsible for the ongoing problem. But I admit that putting electrodes in those areas seems really radical to me and I am not that thrilled with this method. I would try with psycho therapy and a change of medicament treatment.
