Depression symptoms and effects

Many people feel down for short periods of time, but when this becomes a debilitating factor on a regular basis, it may be an indicator of something far more serious. Depression symptoms may persist for many months or even years, and depression can affect the way a person thinks and behaves. Feelings of dread, sadness or worthlessness can be very debilitating and can severely limit an individual’s ability to function normally at home or work.

The most common depression symptoms are:

  1. withdrawing from close family and friends
  2. relying on alcohol and sedatives
  3. not doing commonly enjoyable activities
  4. loss or change of appetite
  5. feeling guilty and indecisive


Treatment for depression

Depression Treatment

- a personal journey to wellbeing

Depression can develop from a combination of factors that are physical, psychological, biochemical, or genetic. It can also be triggered by social factors and adverse life events such as grief, sexual or physical abuse, and severe stress. At Kusnacht Practice depression treatment center, detailed laboratory and environmental analyses allow us to present a unique depression treatment plan, medical restoration and relaxation therapy in luxury surroundings that fit your personal needs.

Contact our depression treatment center if you need an individual interview or dedicated consultation.


We provide the very best care and comfort. The treatment investment at our rehab for depression starts at CHF 97,000 per week. This covers all program costs, excluding transportation to/from the client’s home to Zurich, medical issues unrelated to the treatment program, Continuing Care. Fees are settled directly by the client (we do not work with insurance companies), and we can supply written quotations upon request.

The Kusnacht Practice rehab for depression services are not covered by Swiss health insurance. All costs are to be covered directly by the clients. Their health insurance may reimburse patients who are domiciled in Switzerland and are therefore mandatorily health insured for medical services in accordance with the Federal Law on Health Insurance (KVG) and its implementing provisions.

    “I was suffering badly from my bipolar and personality disorder and it was the cause of my marriage break up, but I was offered unconditional love and support at The Kusnacht Practice. I had tried other centres, but it was the therapy and aftercare from The Kusnacht Practice that enabled me to recover from my bipolar disorder.”
