WHICH IS BETTER, THERAPY OR MEDICATION?

Research has demonstrated that the most effective way to manage mental illness is through a combination of medication and psychotherapy. Medication can address biological factors and reduce symptoms so that individuals can more effectively engage with the process of psychotherapy—which in this case often focuses on the role and function that our symptoms play in our daily lives and relationships.

Psychotherapy can help you build the confidence and tools you need to cope with symptoms, establish boundaries with friends and family that encourage growth and healing, and set goals for the kind of life you want to live.
