To avoid this fact when it is part of someone's life history is to ignore the hope of working to recapture order out of disorder. To relieve one of the pscychosocial stress that contributed to the onset and persistence of depression (or other mental illnesses) can be only work to one's advantage.

Allowing the old disordered though patterns to persist untreated is to retain indefinitely the paychodynamics that triggered the depression in the first place. Identifying the first few dominoes to fall in the chain of events that generated the alterations in brain function is important to remove the causative factors.

Childhood adversity, especially neglect, is an almost universal contributor to the subsequent dysregulation in the neurobiology of the brain. The longer one remains depressed, the greater the risk of developing treatment resistance. The same thing applies to the number of depressive episodes one experiences.

The idea that I'm trying to convey is that psychotherapy + pharmacotherapy (or other biological interventions) is more effective than pharmacotherapy alone. This is supported by almost every clinical study published on the topic.

The need for psythotherapy as an adjunct to pharmacotherapy is not universal.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
