It would be nice if there were, and it's tempting to believe that there must be a "cure," but the cold hard reality is that in the case of manic-depression and recurring unipolar depression, it's not bloody likely - not in my lifetime, anyway.

I think that talk of "treating the symptoms not the cause" or "getting to the root of the problem" is a bit silly. We don't know all the cause(s) of this stuff yet, though genetics and, for some people, early or recent experiences seem to play some role.
