Many of the evidence based and effective psychotherapies such as cognitive behavior therapy and dialectical behavior therapy include components that require the patient to challenge themselves outside of the therapy sessions independently with a variety of activities and mental exercises.
We believe that making changes where indicated in the patient’s lifestyle is important. Mental illness, much like chronic illnesses of the body such as high blood pressure or diabetes, can respond to lifestyle interventions. It has been shown that exercise (as simple as taking a walk) and a healthy diet can target mental illness as part a treatment approach that may also include psychiatric medication and psychotherapy.
