We’ll Help You Manage Your Medications
Medications can be the foundation of treatment for many people struggling with mental health challenges and are often the treatment of choice for persons with serious brain disorders such as severe and persistent mental illness. For adults and children battling depression, attention deficient disorders, anxiety, grief, or addictive disorders, medications may bring relief to some (or all) of the symptoms he or she is experiencing.
Every individual seeking medication services needs an assessment by a psychiatrist or psychiatric advanced practice nurse. This is to determine the potential benefit of psychoactive medications and
the management of the medication regimen. Compass Health can provide this assessment along with:
- Education regarding the effects of the medication and its relationship to the person’s behavioral health challenge(s)
- Prescription of medications
- Ongoing monitoring of the medication’s effects
