Many approaches exist to improve the symptoms of depression, helping those living with the condition to feel better and settle back into regular working life. One such approach is cognitive behavioural therapy, or CBT.

CBT is a short-term therapy that helps individuals to change negative thought processes and behaviours. Rather than focusing on the cause of the distress, it aims to make the subject focus on how problems are thought about and how they feel physically and emotionally.

For businesses, CBT can, consequently, prove an extremely cost-effective way of reducing sickness absence or losing valued members of staff from a company’s workforce.
