Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This review identified five different types of nonpharmacological interventions aiming to alleviate poststroke depressive symptoms. These included complementary and alternative therapy, exercise, psychosocial therapy, multifactorial therapy, and cranial stimulation. The findings of the meta-analysis indicated that nonpharmacological interventions have a favorable effect on alleviating depressive symptoms after stroke at both postintervention and follow-up, especially psychosocial therapy.
