not an exercise substitute

(Blogging on mental health from WIAMH shall now begin ... it's about time, I think.)

A recently published study from Texas, USA [1] indicates that individually targeted exercise is as beneficial, in around half of cases, as secondary medication as a means of alleviating depression.  This isn't the first study to have shown a generally positive effect; it's almost received wisdom; but this study gets very interesting in its exploration of the difference between the effect on people in different circumstances, including the difference between people with family history of mental illness and those without.
