Medication Management

If you are struggling with a mental health condition, your therapist or primary care physician may recommend that you consult with a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner to assess your need for medication or continuation of medication.  A psychiatric practitioner will perform an initial checkup (assessment) similar to what a primary care provider might do. An assessment will include an overview of your symptoms and a determination of whether or not medication is a good option for you. Psychiatric practitioners specialize in treating mental health and are knowledgeable about medications specific to mental health disorders.
