Psychological interventions or depression counseling are deemed effective for clinical depression, so if you are suffering from depression or a member of your family is, know that we at The New Hope Mental Health Counseling Services are here to help you overcome the rigors of depression.
While it’s true that severe depression may require medication, talk therapy for the most part takes care of the needs of clients to develop concrete strategies to counter the effects of the disorder itself in daily life. Talk therapy is central to the effective treatment of depression, alongside any medications prescribed by a psychiatrist.
The path to recovery from clinical depression is rarely a straight one and there is actually a depression learning path that must be traversed, preferably with the help of family, friends, and a depression counselor/therapist.
A distinction also has to be made at this point between treating clinical depression (with medication) and learning to overcome it. A person can be taking various medications for CD, but without the correct coping strategies, for instance, many difficulties associated with the disorder can still stand in the way of meaningful recovery.
