建议职业活动是治疗性的，他们帮助病人与病房的工作人员和其他病人接触，并建立自我价值和对出院的信心。除了抗抑郁的治疗，爱丽丝还拥有团队心理学家的投入，以帮助促进她的迅速康复。NICE(2009)建议，患有中度或重度抑郁症的患者应提供高强度的心理干预，即认知行为治疗(CBT)或个人治疗(IPT)，并结合使用抗抑郁药物。Papageorgiou, C. et al.(2011)证实，抑郁症最广为人知的一种心理治疗方法是CBT，它将认知和行为技术结合成一个完整的整体。护士和MDT教育了爱丽丝如何促进更健康的生活方式的选择，并向爱丽丝提供了关于她的情况和关于戒烟的信息的传单，这样她就可以自己做出明智的选择。Wrycraft(2009)认为，心理健康促进是一项健康保健专业人员的活动，作为他们日常工作的一部分，并没有意识到他们正在从事这样的活动。然而，在其他时候，他们积极地寻求有关健康促进活动的信息。工作人员通过加强病房的病人来促进这些健康宣传，他们通过1:1的会议提高了情绪的恢复力，并与病人协商以提高她的自尊心和应对技巧。

In addition to the antidepressant treatment, Alice also had the team psychologist inputs to help promote her prompt recovery. NICE (2009) recommends that, people with moderate or severe depression should be provided with a high-intensity psychological intervention i.e. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or Individual Personal Therapy (IPT) with a combination of antidepressant medication. Papageorgiou, C. et al. (2011) affirms that, one of the most widely known types of psychological therapy for depression is CBT, which combines both cognitive and behavioural techniques into an integrated whole. The nurse and the MDT have educated Alice on how to promote healthier lifestyles choices and provided Alice with information in the form of leaflets about her condition and range of information on smoking cessation so that she can make her own informed choice. Wrycraft (2009) argues that, mental health promotion is an activity healthcare professionals carryout as part of their everyday practice in their roles and do not realise they are engaging in such activity. However at other times they actively seek information about health promotion activities .Staff facilitated these health promotions by strengthening the patients on the ward, they increased emotional resilience through 1:1sessions and negotiating with the patients to promote her self-esteem and coping skills.
