People who seek professional help for mental health conditions like

depression or panic disorder are more likely to accept and follow through

when talk therapy is prescribed, rather than medication, according to a new

meta-analysis of previous research.

 

The report, published by the American Psychological Association, found that

patients were as much as three times more likely to refuse or not complete

their recommended mental health treatment if it took the form of

psychotropic medicine, such as antidepressants, instead of psychotherapy.
