Q: Why is visiting a mental health specialist so important?
Not all mental health conditions require medication and extensive treatment plans. Approximately 1 in 5 adults deal with some extent of a mental health crisis or issue on a regular basis. It is actually more common than people think. Getting a mental health check up should be just as prioritized as an annual physical with your local physician.
When it comes to loved ones, everyone wishes the best life and care for them. If they are experiencing a mental health issue or crisis, being seen should be a top priority to help establish routines and treatment to helping them regain some normalcy to their life.
Q: How long is a typical appointment?
Initial medication management appointments take approximately 1 hour. Follow-up medication management appointments can range from 20-30 minutes. Initial and subsequent counseling appointments may take up to an hour.
