Are You Struggling With Melancholia?
Available Treatment Options
Counseling interventions for depression and melancholia include examining symptoms and thought processes related to those symptoms.
If a person is dealing with despair, a therapist might sit with them and inquire when the despair seems to peak. From there, they can work together to identify unhelpful thought patterns and bring into view more balanced self-talk. Building self-esteem, medication, and group therapy are other counseling interventions commonly used for depression and melancholia.
