Mental health disorders such as depression impair the lives of approximately one in four adults in the United Kingdom.
While several mental health disorders last for prolonged periods, some mental health disorders, including depressive episodes, are temporary.
Although temporary, depressive episode treatment is recommended. This is because the side effects associated with depressive episodes can have many pessimistic repercussions.
Furthermore, without depressive episode treatment, individuals are at greater risk of developing additional mental health problems, such as anxiety, chronic depression and bipolar disorder.
Treatment Provided For Depressive Episodes
Depressive episode treatment is available via the NHS and private rehab centres, such as the ones in our network. Yet, many individuals sadly defer the treatment they require to relieve themselves of the thoughts, feelings and moods they encounter due to depressive episodes.
Often, depressive episode treatment is deferred due to the stigmas associated with depression and other mental health disorders. In other instances, depressive episode treatment is not sought due to a lack of information available.
To ensure that you are aware of the treatment you can take advantage of, we have provided a wealth of information regarding the depressive episode treatment at our centres below.
At each of our rehab centres in the United Kingdom and Spain, psychological therapy has proven to be a highly effective form of depressive episode treatment.
Although the psychological therapy you encounter at our centres will be dependent upon the severity of your depressive episodes, you will likely participate in cognitive behavioural therapy.
Classified as a talking therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy will encourage you to reflect on the emotions and thoughts you experience and determine how they affect your mood.
Working with one of our experienced psychologists, as you progress through cognitive behavioural therapy or other forms of psychological therapy, you will find that your perspective on various factors changes.
Rather than focusing on situations that cause you to experience depressive episodes, you will instead consider how you can change your thoughts and feelings to alleviate depressive episodes.
Should you attend Asana Lodge, you will also have the opportunity to take advantage of a number of industry-leading therapies that encourage the body and brain to heal from the ramifications of depressive episodes. These treatments include Satori Chair Therapy and NAD+ Therapy.
In addition to experiencing psychological therapy, our residential rehabilitation centres all provide well-being therapy.
Well-being therapy, such as yoga, meditation, art therapy and drama therapy, will offer you the opportunity to reflect on your depressive episodes. Well-being therapy has also helped many of our clients enhance their self-esteem and emotional well-being.
Although well-being therapy enables you to express your struggles with depressive episodes in a way that suits you best, you will be guided by a well-being facilitator. The facilitator will help you understand how to use various strategies to relieve stress and explore your thoughts and feelings.
Social Activities and Exercise
Contrary to belief, social activities and exercise also play a significant role in combating depressive episodes. With this in mind, should you obtain depressive episode treatment at one of our centres, you will be encouraged to take part in many social activities during your time in treatment.
The social activities provided will entirely depend on the centre you attend. However, most of our centres offer the following;
- Daily group walks
- Quiz nights
- Jogging and running clubs
