Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Depression (ACT-D)

ACT-D is a therapy that can help transform and improve the lives of people experiencing depression. ACT-D aims to help you live in a way that’s more closely aligned with your values, improving your relationships with yourself, others, and the world.

Through this therapy, you’ll learn to accept your thoughts and emotions, choose and commit to actions that align with your values, and take action to achieve what matters most to you. ACT-D typically requires 10 to 16 individual sessions, but it can be tailored to your treatment preferences and priorities. This therapy can lead to:

  • A decrease in negative thoughts and feelings.
  • Increased awareness and focus that helps you to fully connect with others and live in the moment.
  • The ability to clarify your values and take action to achieve what means the most to you in life.

If you choose ACT-D, you may be asked to:

  • Commit to attending sessions regularly.
  • Set treatment goals with your provider at the onset of therapy.
  • Speak openly about your depression, the challenges you’re facing, and your values.

To determine whether ACT-D may be right for you, speak with your mental health provider about your symptoms so you can work together to create the most effective treatment plan.
