Effective mental health treatment

iCAP Services logoEarlier this year, the New York post ran an article that supports the shift that is currently underway for the treatment of mental health issues.

An holistic approach to mental illness is slowly gaining support. In this article, the US Army and Navy concede that prescription drugs alone are not the answer to the mental health issues facing their combat veterans. They are now looking at expanding their treatments to include yoga, acupuncture and talk therapy as well as prescription drugs.

Mental health issuesDo you have an experience you’d like to share about an holistic approach to mental health? Did you find your medication and treatment was more effective when coupled with counselling or other allied health services?
