Is therapy even helpful?

There is strong medical data to show that talk therapy is a very effective treatment for many mental health problems. Individual, couples, and group therapy can help people make substantial and long-standing changes in their mental health. There is also evidence that physical brain changes take place during therapy. Patients who go through therapy actually develop new and healthier ways of thinking, feeling and interacting with other people; they feel less stressed and can function better in their day-to-day life.
