If you suffer or have suffered from depression, you know that the most basic tasks can be unbearable and leave you feeling apathetic and drained of your will to go on. Even the most simple activities of daily life like getting out of bed, doing laundry, and playing with your kids or dog can be too much for you to deal with. For people living with depression, talk therapy and medications may be helpful, but they are not the only solutions to relieving the depression. Art Therapy has become an effective treatment for supporting, releasing, and integrating the symptoms of depression by supporting an individual in exploring depression through their senses. Although on the surface art therapy may look less conventional, it has been seen to be just as effective as talk therapy because it uses the whole body’s experience, and not just a person’s intellect.
