A recent study showed that a significant number of patients being treated for depression with only antidepressants don’t experience sufficient benefit or reduction in symptoms of depression. But, for those patients, adding talk therapy – in this case CBT – proved effective in reducing symptoms and improving their mood.
If you or a loved one are experiencing symptoms of depression, many treatment options are available including psychotherapy (CBT) and medication.
