If you want to help your partner cope with depression you might want to consider some tenderness and love.

An affectionate couple

Depression is a horrible state of mind which nobody wants to live with. The psychiatric approach to treating depression with drugs far too often causes far more harm than good. A good natural alternative for the treatment of depression is some tender loving care.

Try offering some tenderness if you want to help your partner to cope with depression

It has been reported by the University of Alberta that it's a good idea to try offering some tenderness if you want to help your partner to cope with depression. Research has shown that if you help to lower the stress of your romantic partner there may be mental health benefits.

The greater the depths of your romantic partner's depression the more love you should offer them

It seems that the greater the depths of your romantic partner's depression the more love you should offer them. Matthew Johnson, who is a professor in the University of Alberta's Faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences, says that initiatives by a partner to help you cope with stress may help to prevent the evolution or exacerbation of mental health problems.

Stress causes problems with physical and mental health and relationships

Physical and mental health along with close relationships can suffer terribly from stress. Good support can assist you in treating stress. Due to being very vulnerable emotionally during periods of intense stress support from a partner during such times can be particularly beneficial.

Researchers found that getting support when stressed is associated with feelings of self-worth

This study has been published in the journal Developmental Psychology. The researchers found that getting support when stressed is associated with feelings of self-worth and less depression in the future. Relationships of
couples appear to represent a vital factor which may play an important role in the developmental pathways which connect self-esteem and symptoms of depression.

There are just about always viable alternatives to psychiatric drugs which are not as intrusive

Jim Gottstein, JD, the founder of PsychRights, has reported that the government can never actually prove by clear and convincing evidence that it is in the best interest of someone to force them to take a psychiatric drug. There are just about always viable alternatives to treat mental illness which are not as intrusive. And the Citizens Commission on Human Rights has reported there have been 160 drug regulatory agency warnings from countries worldwide which warn that there can be side effects with antidepressant drugs.

Yet the psychiatrists continue to prescribe their toxic arsenal of psychiatric drugs for every little perceived of problem while consistently showing no desire or aptitude to convey emotional warmth to help heal the emotional problems of their patients. In fact the arrogant, uncaring attitudes of psychiatrists in dealing with patients seems to nurture mental illness. So everyone seems to be better off turning to someone significant in their lives who will take the time to show some tenderness and love to help nurture mental health.
