Family therapy is often the preferred treatment method for a range of issues, including depression, alcoholism, relational conflicts, and challenges within child/adolescent-parent relationships, such as suicidal tendencies and high-risk behaviors. The positive outcomes of family therapy for severe mental illnesses encompass enhanced overall well-being, reduced occurrences of medical illnesses, decreased utilization of medical services, and an increased sense of self-efficacy.
