HI srivastava.sneha88.

THANKS FOR YOUR QUESTION.

IT IS A CASE OF AGITATED DEPRESSION OR BIPOLAR DISORDER WITH CURRENT PHASE DEPRESSION.OK.WHATEVER THE DIAGNOSIS MAY BE IT CAN BE TOTALLY CURABLE BY PROPER MEDICATION AND IF NEEDED BY COGNITIVE BEHAVIOUR THERAPY.BUT DRUG SHOULD BE TAKEN REGULARLY.

IF YOU ASK MY OPINION THEN I TELL YOU DONT ALLOW HIM TO GO OUTSIDE IN NEXT 6 MONTHS WITHIN THAT HE WILL BE CONTROLLED BY MEDICATION THEN YOU CAN SEND HIM OUTSIDE.DONT HESITATE DEPRESSION PATIENT DOING VERY WELL IN THEIR ACADEMIC AND PROFESSIONAL LIFE ONLY THEY NEED SOME FAMILY SUPPORT .

THANK YOU
