Treatment Options for Teenagers, Adults, and Seniors Suffering from Depression

No matter what age you are, suffering from depression is not an easy way to live. There are many treatment options from prescription medications to alternative therapies and psychotherapy groups. But what if outside sources, which you could control, partially could help with the treatment of your depression?

Some options for teenagers, adults, and seniors suffering from depression are:

• Mild to Moderate exercise – taking a 10-20 minute walk, chair exercise, standing outside and breathing in the fresh air.
• Music – Listening, attending concerts, participating in sing-alongs; music is known to lift the mood of many people no matter their age.
• Pets – The companionship a pet offers is beneficial to a sufferer of depression. Their love and trust makes a depressed person feel wanted and it gives them a daily responsibility to get out of bed in
the morning.
• Volunteering to help others
