Research Progress on Pathogenesis and Intervention Measures of Depression


Exercise intervention




With the wide spread of the epidemic, the long-term closed lifestyle and the sharp reduction of physical activities, many people have mental health problems such as panic, anxiety and depression. At present, there are few studies on the effect of exercise on depression. Therefore, the study selected exercise intervention therapy and other intervention methods to evaluate the intervention effect of depression, and explored the effect of exercise intervention by evaluating depression scale and effective indicators. Hope this can provide a new idea for exercise intervention as an adjunctive therapy for depression on drug treatment.
