The medical department at Turning Leaf provides psychiatric evaluations, medication management, brief solution-focused therapy, and referral for a wide range of mental health issues throughout the lifespan. We focus on medication to assist with managing symptoms, often combined with therapy. Achieving good health requires a balance between mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional factors. Therefore,
Lasting approximately one hour, a psychiatric evaluation gets to the heart of why you need help. We ask questions to help guide us toward selecting the most appropriate medication and other treatment options for you. Reasons to seek our help may include experiencing feelings of sadness, worry, fear, hearing and seeing things you can’t explain, or feeling overly suspicious of others. You can bring anyone with you to this appointment if you feel they will help us better understand how you’ve been acting and feeling.
Monitoring your medication therapy is an important part of getting and staying well. After finishing a psychiatric evaluation, medication management appointments provide you with routine care to see how well your medication is working and discuss any concerns you may have about treatment.
