Ways to Help Depression
There is a wide array of therapeutic options for treating depression. Because all individuals are different, their treatment plans will be different as well.
Types of treatment include:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Psychotherapy (i.e. “talk therapy”)
- Antidepressant medications
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
Treatment can be done on an outpatient, inpatient, or residential treatment basis, depending on an individual’s needs. Generally, depression treatments are used in conjunction with holistic therapies such as yoga, meditation, exercise, and nutrition plans.
