They say there is strength in numbers and that no one man can be an island.

In regards to treating depression, this indeed is very true.

However, being around people with a similar mental state of mind, or people who are in the position of authority (and experience) to help may actually assist he or she to bounce back, that considered, retreats for treating depression may not be a bad idea.

Usually, in most retreats for treating depression, you will find people who are reporting bouts or symptoms of depression such as:

*Frequent crying spells

*Feelings of sadness for over two weeks

*Increased irritability

*Not wanting to spend time with friends and family

*Changes in sleep and appetite patterns

*Difficulty concentrating


Therefore at such retreats, the therapists usually begin with an open discussion of the person's mental state, then progress to an investigative approach as to why such things may be occurring in the person's life to begin with.

They then proceed to offering of solutions and upon a helpful discharge, most retreats for treating depression will keep contact with their patients for periodic check-ups.

So, are retreats for treating depression worth the use?

Here’s to happiness.
