Peien Wang


This paper aims to understand the inner world of depression patients and propose desirable countermeasures for the disease. For this purpose, three young depression patients were interviewed to reveal their psychological state and development. The questions and answers were recorded in details, and the patient in each case was analysed from various aspects. According to the analysis, several conclusions were drawn on the psychological process of depression patients, and a number of suggestions were made for depression patients and their companions. The research findings provide new insights into the understanding and treatment of depression.
