We are not experts on psychology or any of its different disciplines, but hopefully the following websites will give some idea how music is used in helping people to overcome depression. However, in short it would seem that some of the psychologists and psychiatrists are of the opinion that music can relieve stress and that it can enable people to open up to their inner conflicts and thus provide ways to solve the actual reasons behind depression.
