You've been in psychotherapy for awhile, and you're feeling better. Much better. Is it time to quit? The answer is based, in large part, on the type of treatment. "When to end therapy depends on context and diagnosis," says Dr. Gary Kennedy, director of geriatric psychiatry at Montefiore Medical Center in New York. Certain types of treatment, such as cognitive behavior therapy, are designed to relieve disorders such as mild depression or anxiety in a short period, and the end is almost predetermined.
