Counselling offers productive ways to deal with problems, and also helps you to find easier ways to talk about things that are bothering you. Counselling also teaches coping skills, which help you to manage any stresses you might be feeling. Sometimes recovery can take time, so you should try to keep attending counselling even if you find it slow or hard the first few times.
A physician may prescribe and monitor treatment, and may work through a team approach with other mental health workers to help you recover. A newer treatment approach is called Early Intervention, which aims to improve specific areas in your life, including school, work, recreation, healthy eating and exercise. Working on these areas can promote earlier recovery and fewer recurrences of the disorder.
