Prescribed medications can play a key role in the treatment of mental health. They can reduce symptoms and prevent relapses of a psychiatric disorder. For example, a medication can ease symptoms of depression like loss of energy and lack of concentration, allowing an individual to engage more in talk therapy. Medications can also help patients minimize cravings and maintain abstinence from addictive substances.
Medication management of mental heath symptoms is provided at A New View Counseling by Janis Hansen. Janis is board-certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner and Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. She starts with one-on-one evaluations to treat the patient in an integrative, holistic manner. She creates a safe, comfortable, understanding space where patients can communicate honestly to progress toward the results they seek and need. We believe medication can be used short- or long-term to help alleviate symptoms and give the patient a chance at living life to its fullest.
