Music Therapy to Help Those With Depression

Music has been an important part in the lives of many (if not all individuals). It is no wonder that a study has found that music therapy is effective in combattling depression in teens. I personal think that it can work for everyone and not teens. 

I can testify that music has helped me in my own struggles in life and in my depression also. I did not need a study to tell me that it is effective. Even while I write this I am listening to music because of something that has happen in my life and music is there for me.

It feels like the artists are talking directly to me because I can relate to the lyrics.

"By the end of the study, the researchers found that the children who were given music therapy exhibited increased self-esteem and reduced depressive symptoms. They also significantly improved their communication and interactive skills compared with the participants who only received traditional therapy. Follow-ups made after the study also found that the beneficial effects of music therapy can be sustained for a long time."

"The findings are dramatic and underscore the need for music therapy to be made available as a mainstream treatment option". Tech times
