Vocabulary for talking about mental health

I’m trying to formulate a phrase that encompasses the process and struggles of recovering from a severe depressive episode. I’ve strung together a few kanji that I think do an adequate job of capturing what I’m going for: うつびょうかいふくみち (the road to recovery from depression). My question is whether or not this sounds natural in Japanese or if there is already a specific phrase for this. Please feel free to share any other useful vocabulary for talking about mental health. Thanks!

To me the words sound fine. I would probably say 回復への道 (the へ is the “to” in “the road to recovery”). But other than that, I wouldn’t change anything.
