The below device, in combination with Simran/Kirtan (of Gurbani Shabads/Tuks related to Stress elimination), might help a person in managing his/her stress levels in these tough times.

Be interesting to see what freq that sends to the nerve and if it resonates when singing Kirtan already.

Overall though, I think simran is the best solution for this.

Sometimes medication is needed bro, along with Naam Simran.

It is possible that when you have a mental problem, you might not be able to concentrate very well on Naam Simran. Therefore, you might not be able to extract full benefit from Gurbani. At times, even Herbal supplements might be enough to stabilize the mind. You might not even need to go to the doc. 

The key is to identify the mental illness/issue in its very early stages, which is not very hard actually.

Bhai sahib, I would recommend you a video of Bhai Jagraj Singh Ji BOS- 'How to deal with anger'

That clip is a cut from a 1 hr workshop of his, where he gave a great solution to the Sangat and this tip has always worked for me.

He asked the sangat to recite the following panktis when you feel any of the vices are coming over you...

Anger: (i)Agyani Man Ross Karey (Sri Sukhmani Sahib)

(ii)Farida bure da bhala kar, gussa man na handaaye 

Lust: (i)Par Triya Roop na Pekhai Netra (Sri Sukhmani Sahib)

(ii)Par Beti ko beti jaane, Par istri ko maat bakhaane

Aapan istri so rat hoyi, rehitvant singh hai soyi.

(iii) Nij Naari ke saath Neh tum nit badheiyoo, par naari ki sej bhool supne hun na jaaiyo. (Charitropakhyan)

Greed: (i) Deh Naam Santokhia Utrai Man ki bhukh 

Moh: (i) Hum Avgun Bharey Ek gun naahi.......'sut daara syon preet lagayi'........gur ramdaas rakhaho sharnayee 

Ahankar: (i) Jatan Bahut main kar raheyo mitiyo na man ko maan (Salok Mahalla 9)

 

And obviously, there are endless panktis you can find in Gurbani. These were just the popular and 'easy to get Kanth' ones.

Hope it helps

10 common depression symptoms

  1. Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. A bleak outlook—nothing will ever get better and there’s nothing you can do to improve your situation.
  2. Loss of interest in daily activities. You don’t care anymore about former hobbies, pastimes, social activities, or sex. You’ve lost your ability to feel joy and pleasure.
  3. Appetite or weight changes. Significant weight loss or weight gain—a change of more than 5% of body weight in a month.
  4. Sleep changes. Either insomnia, especially waking in the early hours of the morning, or oversleeping.
  5. Anger or irritability. Feeling agitated, restless, or even violent. Your tolerance level is low, your temper short, and everything and everyone gets on your nerves.
  6. Loss of energy. Feeling fatigued, sluggish, and physically drained. Your whole body may feel heavy, and even small tasks are exhausting or take longer to complete.
  7. Self-loathing. Strong feelings of worthlessness or guilt. You harshly criticize yourself for perceived faults and mistakes.
  8. Reckless behavior. You engage in escapist behavior such as substance abuse, compulsive gambling, reckless driving, or dangerous sports.
  9. Concentration problems. Trouble focusing, making decisions, or remembering things.
  10. Unexplained aches and pains. An increase in physical complaints such as headaches, back pain, aching muscles, and stomach pain.
