Medication Management / Aftercare Program
Often medications are recommended to help deal with the symptoms of mental illness. The psychiatrist, nurse practitioner and nurse work collaboratively to assure that the client is guided through the process which often includes education about the risks and benefits of medications, the importance of nutrition and exercise, and ways to prevent negative interactions from medications. Visits are geared toward assisting the client toward a stronger understanding of the medications and why it is important to continue them.
