Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment method used by psychologists to help people overcome various mental illnesses and emotional difficulties. Psychotherapy aims to improve an individual’s well-being and mental health by eliminating or controlling troubling symptoms. A psychotherapist addresses different types of mental, emotional, and behavioral problems such as troublesome phobia, compulsive disorders, and trauma, grief caused by death of loved ones, depression, anxiety, and medical illness. Many different types of psychotherapy techniques have been developed as per the need and indication of the patients. Psychotherapeutic drugs are also being used in combination with other techniques, which are found to be more effective than the use of a single technique. Psychotherapeutic drugs are used to treat several types of mental disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and depression. Several types of psychotherapeutic drugs are available in the market for the treatment of severe mental illnesses and behavioral disorders. Majority of drug class used for the treatment of mental disorders include antidepressant, antipsychotics, and psychotherapeutic combination drugs.
