View the full webinar on PsychU:

Mood disorders are highly prevalent and a leading cause of disability in patients worldwide. Approved pharmacologic treatments are not adequate to provide full symptom relief in a significant portion of patients, leaving a substantial unmet need. Several nonpharmacologic treatment strategies have been shown to be effective in providing symptom relief for mood disorders when augmenting pharmacotherapy.

In this webinar, Dr. Michael Thase and Dr. Saundra Jain provide an overview of evidence-based nonpharmacologic options that can be used as part of a holistic strategy for the treatment of mood disorders. Some of the treatment strategies they’ll discuss include: psychotherapy, exercise, activity management, sleep, mindfulness, meditation, diet, and wellness.
