A. believes that clinical depression, along with several other mental illnesses, are exacerbated by

Subject "Practitioners" doesn't agree with the verb "believes" in number. Also note that "along with several other mental illnesses" is a modifier and doesn't change the number of the subject "clinical depression". Hence the use of "are" is wrong. INCORRECT
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

B. believe that clinical depression, along with several other mental illnesses, is exacerbated by

All the subject verbs agree in number and the verb tense usage makes sense. CORRECT
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

C. believe that clinical depression, along with several other mental illnesses, are exacerbated by

subject "clinical depression" doesn't agree in number with verb "are" INCORRECT
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

D. believed that clinical depression, along with several other mental illnesses, is exacerbated in

The two verbs "believed" and "exacerbated" are states in simple past making them parallel and changes the sequence. INCORRECT
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

E. had believed that clinical depression, along with several other mental illnesses, has been exacerbated by

use of past perfect tense without a related simple past event is INCORRECT
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hence option B
