The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) suggests counselling for Depression.

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide what issue regarding your childhood and/or adulthood you discuss. An objective of counselling is to help you to talk about a difficulty and find a way forward which is appropriate for you.

NICE suggests psychodynamic therapy for
  • Anorexia
  • Depression
  • Self Harm

Thoughts on Mental Health

This is a great book - educative, inspiring, and compelling, especially if you're into psychotherapy and analysis.

No single factor can predict whether or not a person will become addicted to substance abuse. The risk of addiction is influenced by your biology, social environment, and age or stage of development. The more risk factors you have, the greater the chance that taking drugs can lead to addiction. The genes that you are born with - in combination with environmental influences - account for about half of your addiction vulnerability. Additionally, your gender, ethnicity, and the presence of other mental disorders may influence the risk of drug abuse and addiction. Your environment includes many different influences - from family and friends to economic status and quality of life, in general. Factors such as peer pressure, physical and sexual abuse, stress, and parental involvement (or lack of), can greatly influence the course of drug abuse and addiction in your life. Someone who has a family history of addiction, or addictive behaviours, is at higher risk. These genetic and environmental factors interact with critical developmental stages in your life to affect your addiction vulnerability, and adolescents experience a double challenge. Although taking drugs at any age can lead to addiction, the earlier that drug use begins, the more likely it is to progress to more serious abuse.
