Getting help for depression, anxiety or any other psychological concern is a big step toward feeling better. Drug therapy has become an increasing popular choice over the past decade, but research shows that psychotherapy is just as helpful — if not more so, in some cases. We want you to know that you have a choice when getting treatment for depression, anxiety or other psychological concerns. Psychotherapy is one of those choices.
This page offers a collection of articles, tips sheets and links to research to better understand psychotherapy, how it works and how you can get started. Share our links and video with your friends, family and physicians and help get out the message that psychotherapy works!
