Managing Depression with Psychotherapy and Lifestyle Changes
In some cases, medication alone cannot effectively manage depression symptoms. Psychotherapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy, is an important part of the journey to mental wellness. These therapies help identify personal behavioral/thought patterns and how personal relationships or life changes may be contributing to depression. Finding ways to work through issues is a valuable approach to managing depressive symptoms. A personalized treatment plan may also include lifestyle recommendations about exercise, alcohol or substance abuse, and other factors that can impact mental wellness.
