In brief: Many strategies

can be applied to maintain or improve mental wellness short of medication.
These can include: talk therapy, relaxation activities, meditation, yoga, herbal remedies, and more. Find an open-minded physician who specializes in areas such as holistic medicine, alternative medicine, integrative medicine, wellness, anti aging, or preventative medicine. Explore your options with them. Best wishes

I have been trained by the military to perform acupuncture to help care for wounded warriors.
There are acupuncture protocols for PTSD, Traumatic Brain injury, Depression, Insomnia, Anxiety, ADHD, Tinnitus, Etc. ETC. It can bring hope to someone whose life has been shattered.

In brief: Yes

The good news is this has begun to cross over where psychologists now also teach and practice it. Of course, there are other forms such as acupuncture, massage therapy, etc. That may fall into this category.
