Multicultural behavioral healthcare for all ages
Our psychiatrist or Nurse Practitioner will assess your symptoms and help to determine what medication would be a good option in the treatment of your mental health concerns. Every person’s treatment and needs will be tailored to their needs and life goals. Based on this assessment, a diagnosis is made, and a treatment plan is designed with the patient at the clinic. If it is in the patient’s best interests, medications will be discussed and education will be provided on the actions, uses, and side effects of the suggested medication options. When the patient agrees on a medication and treatment option, the medication is prescribed for a trial period to observe the effectiveness. This is the “medication management,” aspect of psychiatric care. We monitor the effectiveness of medication over a course of time to determine if the treatment meets the patient’s goals.
