Depression is a serious mental health issue that can have a huge impact on your life, preventing you from finding joy or concentrating on your tasks. In some cases, it’s almost impossible to do anything, and counseling, medication, or self-help techniques don’t seem to make a difference.

But what if we told you that there is an unconventional approach that could completely change your mood? It may sound crazy, but this therapy has been proven effective in medical studies to help people with depression. Read on to find out how this unique and surprising method works, so you can decide for yourself if it can give you the relief you’ve been looking for.


Scream therapy, also known as primal therapy, is a type of psychotherapy that involves allowing people to safely express their emotions through shouting. The idea behind this approach is that it helps release powerful, long-buried feelings that may have been held in for years, embed themselves deep within the body, and trigger neurological rewiring to improve mental health. The hope is that by enabling patients to systematically let go of their deep pain in this way, they will be able to become more present and more connected with themselves and those around them.

Proponents of this method also believe that it may help reduce stress levels and improve physical symptoms related to mental illness. Further research is needed to better understand the effects of scream therapy; however, if you feel that expressing your emotions through shouting can help you get through difficult times in your life, talk to a mental health professional who can help you.

If yelling is so good for our mental health, why do we rarely do it?

There’s no denying that shouting can benefit our mental health, giving us an outlet to release our frustrations and emotions. But we tend not to shout in public or even in private due to the stigma associated with it. People associate yelling with being uncontrollable, aggressive, and angry — traits that society expects us to suppress rather than express. So while shouting has its benefits, most of us choose not to use it due to embarrassment or judgment from those around us. We tell ourselves that it’s easier to keep everything inside than to risk being considered a “screamer”, even though we know how much better we’d feel if we let ourselves scream.

How to get started in Screaming Therapy?

Getting started with scream therapy is quite simple. After all, we all know how to scream, right? But feeling comfortable is easier said than done.

Here is a step-by-step guide to successful therapy.

But if you don’t feel like waiting or watching a video, you can get started with scream therapy right now by following these simple steps.

  • To start, create a private and welcoming space. It could be a room in your house or an outdoor space – wherever you feel most comfortable letting your voice out!
  • Then have something nearby to muffle your noise. It can be a towel, a pillow, a blanket, or even just your shirt sleeve. Choose something comfortable and fabric.
  • Get down on the floor and make yourself comfortable. Adopt a position that makes you feel energized. The warrior stance is popular in scream therapy, so spread your legs, shoulder length or more, and really bend over.
  • Then shout into your mute object! Let yourself go. Scream with all your might!

The benefits of Shouting Meditation are:

  • The release of accumulated tensions and emotions.
  • Removing mental blocks.
  • Increased sense of grounding.
  • An increased sense of autonomy.

In fact, studies have shown that shouting can increase physical strength (up to 7% in one study). A psychiatrist also noted that screaming can release positive chemicals in your brain, saying, “Screaming can trigger endorphins, a natural state of euphoria. You may feel calm, and it may even be a little addictive. It’s actually similar to runner’s high. You get the same effect in a different way. »
