This is a therapeutic treatment offered by trained mental health care professionals. This treatment explores the behaviours, thoughts and feelings of the affected for improving his or her well-being. When psychotherapy is combined
with proper medicines, it is one of the most effective methods of promoting recovery. Good examples of psychotherapy include exposure therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and dialectical behaviour therapy.
Medicines for mental illnesses do not serve as the best treatment. Nevertheless, they might be of good help in managing the symptoms of mental problems.
This type of treatment involves case managers assessing, planning and implementing different strategies for facilitating recovery.
