Treatment methods for psychiatric disorders can be differentiated as either somatic or psychotherapeutic. We will be discussing about somatic treatments including drugs, electroconvulsive therapy, and deep brain stimulation such as Transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy on psychotherapeutic treatments including psychotherapy, behavior therapy techniques such as Dialectrical behavior therapy, hypnotherapy and mindfulness-based therapies.  

Psychosurgery, including deep brain stimulation, is another available treatment for some disorders creative therapies are sometimes used, including music therapy, art therapy or drama therapy. Lifestyle adjustments and supportive measures are often used, including peer support, self-help and supported housing or employment. Some advocate dietary supplements. Many things have been found to help at least some people. A placebo effect may play a role.
