8. Psychotherapy Is Effective For Mild Depression
Not all forms of depression required prescribed medication and the first stage for treating mild depression is often through counseling. Psychotherapy is a very effective form of treating mental health problems where a patient is encouraged to diagnose the reasons behind his depression through the form of speech. In each session, a trained psychiatrist helps the patient understand his ownfeelings, moods, thoughts and mode of behavior.
Women who are pregnant may suffer from depression and since heavy medication is not permitted as it could harm the baby, psychotherapy is very effective. Understanding the causes of one’s mood swings and other symptoms helps a patient be more aware of his mental state of mind. Keeping a journal also helps.
