Given the prevalence of major depressive disorder (MDD) and its significant economic and personal costs to society, families, and those with MDD, and given the frequent failure of contemporary therapeutics to treat MDD, it is imperative that nurses explore holistic approaches to managing MDD. My story provides a case study for how several approaches can be blended to holistically manage MDD. The approach that is effective for me requires faithfully attending to diet, exercise, sunlight, sleep, and spirituality, as well as continuing to receive psychological and social support.
