My son, who is 15 years old, started studying at a renowned entrance exam coaching center from last year. His mother has accompanied him since then. However, we noticed that he is suffering from depression. Immediately, he was referred to a psychiatrist. He also underwent some counseling sessions by an expert counselor. For about 2 to 3 months, his studies were almost none, although he used to attend the classes. In the meantime, he was also averse to attend the classes.
Gradually, he started attending the classes regularly. Later on, apart from attending regular classes (5 to 6 hours), he studies for about 2 to 2.5 hours per day regularly. Now, it seems that he is alright. But, still, he is not that dedicated to studies the way he was used to before the depression. As per our perception he is alright now and should gradually devote more time to study. His treatment is still going on. Now, we are skeptical about how far the treatment will last. Is it because of the pills that he is not that much interested in studies? The doctor is not properly guiding us. What we should do? How far this treatment will still go on? Where to stop this treatment? Is this treatment on right track? Please guide us. The case papers are attached herewith. Thank you.
