Mood Disorder Treatment
Mood disorder treatments depend on the specific diagnosis of symptoms. An accurate mood disorder diagnosis must precede the treatment. The term “mood disorders” refers broadly to all mood-related illnesses. There are many kinds of mood disorders, including major depression, and complicated bereavement.
Though each of these illnesses is different in its symptoms, all are alike in the stress and suffering that they cause. Every client needs to have their own specific mood disorder treatment customized for their needs.
At Solara Mental Health, we know how disruptive mood disorders can be in our clients’ everyday lives, keeping them from doing as much as they want, attaining professional or social goals, and coping with day-to-day life, or even alter their entire sense of self-perception or their worldview.
For those whose mood disorders are not effectively treated by outpatient care, our residential facility can provide the calm, supportive environment—coupled with expert care—needed for recovery and lasting wellness.
Mood Disorder Treatment Details
At Solara Mental Health, we tailor our mood disorder treatment plans to the individual, helping each client work through their own specific symptoms and create a plan to manage those symptoms in their day-to-day lives. These personalized treatment programs are aided by the residential nature of our program, which allows clients to have individual, compassionate support whenever needed. Similarly, our staff specializes in mood disorder treatment, and are experts in helping clients find stability, well-being, and peace.
Often, medication is a vital, even life-saving, part of mood disorder treatment. At Solara, our residential format allows our onsite psychiatrists to both administer and closely monitor medication on a day-to-day basis, helping us to find the medication regimen that is best suited to the client’s specific symptoms and needs.
Individual psychotherapy has been shown to be a crucial part of effective treatment for mood disorders, even for those whose symptoms are primarily managed through medication. At Solara, we utilize a combination of intensive individual psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which together help clients better understand their symptoms and any underlying causes of the mood disorder, as well as developing new, healthy coping mechanisms that are the foundation of long-lasting recovery.
Solara offers a range of group therapies where clients can explore their specific diagnosis with a group of understanding peers. Group therapy is a safe space, one where clients can feel supported, respected, and no longer isolated.
Physical and mental health have a very close relationship. Although physical care— such as good nutrition and regular exercise—can seem insignificant compared to the emotional and mental symptoms of a mood disorder, physical care can drastically improve quality of life. As such, Solara offers a variety of holistic therapies designed to help clients heal physically, including physical exercise classes, yoga, massage, and acupuncture. Our private chefs also prepare wholesome, delicious meals that will contribute to a client’s overall well-being.
While our clients make considerable and rapid improvements, mood disorders are often long-term conditions. Understanding this through years of experience, Solara Mental Health provides the entire spectrum of care from in-residence to outpatient to transitional living to continuing, customized case management of long-term aftercare planning to ensure maximum, long-term success. Solara Mental Health is committed and dedicated to freeing our clients from the clutches of mood disorders, and each of our programs is created to ensure this.

Solara was truly a life-changing experience for me and for our children, because of what you did for my wife! The treatment team was phenomenally supportive and perfect for helping her with her anxiety and depression. We are all now moving forward to put our lives back together and it started with you all in Pacific Beach. Thank you for what you do.
Even though I’m not religious, I realized when I got sober that for the first time in my life I wanted to explore my spiritual side. I benefited hugely from the individual spiritual sessions that I had with Chris. I’m really grateful for that aspect of the whole treatment experience.
The Solara program is truly amazing. I’ve never had more clarity or more good energy in my entire life. The attention the physicians and the therapists gave me was outstanding. I feel like they truly understood and addressed my issues, which had consumed my life for years. Thank you all.
The therapists and counselors and really whole team were extremely beneficial to me and my understanding of my issues. The treatment plan they developed was exactly what I needed
We are so grateful to you for the treatment and care you provided our daughter. She is doing unbelievably well now thanks to your program. We will gladly tell anyone we encounter that needs treatment about the wonderful work you do at Solara.
The program has given me the tools I needed to really gain stability. For the first time in years - maybe for as long as I can remember, actually, I’m learning how to cope and manage my stressors and triggers. I now believe that I can find some relief and happiness.
Solara’s program was such a positive experience for our mom (and for us)! She had become almost impossible to deal with. Your entire staff was phenomenally supportive and kind and patient with her. We feel like we’ve got our mom back, now.
