Psychiatry for Adults

Every individual receiving psychiatric services needs an assessment by a psychiatrist or psychiatric advanced practice nurse. This assessment is used to determine both the need for medication and the management of the medication regimen. Adapt providers can provide this assessment along with:
  • Education regarding the effects of the medication and its relationship to the person’s behavioral health disorders
  • Prescription of medications
  • Ongoing monitoring of the medication’s effects
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 battling depression, anxiety, grief, or addictive disorders, medications may bring relief to some (or all) of the symptoms he or she is experiencing.
