Medication Management

Our psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners are responsible for assessing the mental health status of patients by studying their relevant medical history, performing comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, and identifying risk factors that might affect a patient’s mental health. They make diagnoses of their patients’ mental illness based on their assessment, and then determine what will be the most effective plan of care. By utilizing their knowledge of psychotherapy modalities and psychopharmacology, and in collaboration with psychotherapists and other professionals, these advanced-practice nurses put their patients on a regimen of therapy and prescription medication to improve their mental health.
