APA: Psychotherapy over Medication (Videos)

The American Psychological Association (APA) is urging people to try psychotherapy as the first line of treatment for depression, anxiety, or stress. The new campaign is designed to raise awareness about the prevalence of prescription medication. "There are no short cuts to being your best self," says the APA's YouTube video description. "Psychotherapy and psychologists give the long-term skills to live your life to the fullest."
