NICE recommend talk therapy for depressed28th October 2009
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has said that antidepressants should not be used routinely to treat depression in adults with chronic health problems.
NICE recommends structural physical activities and talking therapies for mild to moderate problems although organisations such as the mental health charity MIND said the guidance could be interpreted as an excuse to cut counselling services. Figures show that depression is two to three times more common in patients with problems such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
