The use of exercise in the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD) has gained support, as evidenced by the inclusion of exercise treatment in the American Psychiatric Association’s most recent treatment guidelines. However, data suggest that mental health professionals infrequently prescribe or discuss exercise with their patients. This session will review the current evidence supporting exercise in the treatment of MDD. Dr. Rethorst will also highlight strategies to effectively prescribe exercise to patients with MDD by including interactive activities in this session.
