Yet, some of the world’s most highly esteemed mental health professionals have voiced concern over the traditional methods of care that may fall short of what is needed for today’s best treatment outcomes.

Some are calling for a complete paradigm shift, preferring to see more use of alternative treatment for mental health, as well as integrative approaches, and more emphasis on collaborative and complementary medicine than ever before.1.3

Evidence-based Alternative Mental health Therapies

holistic therapies for mental healthIn summary, there are many well-tested areas of alternative therapies for mental health, and these are considered to have shown evidence of therapeutic value when tested in studies and trials. 

Some examples of these include: 

  • Physical exercise and other physical therapies such as light-therapy, yoga, massage, acupuncture, equine-assisted therapy, etc. 
  • Targeted nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, etc.
  • Various forms of psychotherapy, CBT, and other forms of talk therapy, life coaching, etc.

Similarly, the pharmacological hold on the health industry, in general, has begun to loosen its monopolistic grasp. This has allowed for more opportunities than ever before for clients to choose non-drug-based treatment for authentic and effective help with mental health issues.
