MEDICATION MANAGEMENT

Mental Health Medication

WHEN COUNSELING ALONE DOES NOT HELP

COMMON MENTAL HEALTH ILLNESSES

Medication may be helpful when other efforts have been exhausted such as counseling, exercise, diet, and other holistic approaches.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The first appointment will be an evaluation to see if Psychiatric Medication is appropriate. It will consist of getting height, weight, temperature, and blood pressure then discussing your medical and mental health history. Some medications may require lab work and/or assessments. If you are currently or have previously been on Psychiatric Medication, records will need to be reviewed prior to the first appointment. To review your records we request that all new clients stop by our office or fill out online the Detail Release Of Information Form. This form can be found on the bottom of the website under the Forms section. If you decide to fill this form out at home and want to submit it electronically, we ask that you email the Detail Release Of Information Form to the email listed on our Contact Us page located at the bottom of our website under Company. Thank you.
