I am curious about treatments for anxiety/depression that involve meditation and mindfulness practices. I am aware that some in the medical field promote medications and many of those meds help people. Others in the field promote therapies that rely on the psychology of the mind. Also, some illnesses may require both meds and psychotherapy. Any thoughts out there about this general subject?

I suffer from generalized anxiety. I started with therapy, first.
After a while we realized that although I felt better, I needed more.
I started on meds.
I did both for a long time and I found it helped.
I am still on meds and I've been in and out of therapy when I felt I needed it.
Having a good therapist makes ALL the difference!!
