There are hundreds of mental illnesses in this world. Fortunately, there is treatment for these illnesses which often involves therapy and/or medication. If you develop a mental illness that can be alleviated and managed with medication, medication management will prove essential to your treatment journey.

What Mental Illnesses Can Benefit from Medication?
As we said earlier, some people find the help that they’re looking for in therapy, while others find relief in medication. And, of course, some find that a combination of the two is the key to managing their illness. On that note, there are many different mental health conditions that can be relieved or managed with medication, including:
- Major and minor depression
- Panic disorder
- Postpartum depression
- Bipolar disorder
- Seasonal affective disorder
