Your treatment depends on your particular mental illness, its symptom severity and what you and your doctor think will work best for you. Psychiatric medications do not cure mental illness, though they can alleviate symptoms. In some cases, a combination of treatments works best and medications may assist symptom management in the short term until you are better able to manage symptoms on your own. Whether you are on medications, considering their use, or against their use, psychotherapy can be utilized to more effectively manage your symptoms.
