Psychiatry Evaluation and Treatment
During a psychiatric evaluation, you may be asked a wide range of questions so that your mental health professional can begin to understand how your past and present are affecting your current behaviors and state of mind. Both physical and psychiatric symptoms will be discussed so that we can assess their effects on things such as work, school, relationships, and family. Your personal and family history of emotional, behavioral, and developmental disorders may be discussed, as well.
Professionals are specially trained in the treatment of psychiatric and behavioral disorders through the use of medication. If your provider feels that a particular drug may help you, he or she will prescribe something after they’ve had an opportunity to understand all the facets of your specific medical condition.
Psychiatry Medications Management
Perhaps it’s a medication that was prescribed to you by a previous provider, or a new medication prescribed by a provider here at Texas Behavioral Health Systems. Whatever the case may be, we will gladly discuss your current medications and any medications you’ve previously taken. This information will aid your provider in offering the best possible solution for your medical condition.
Your input is an essential part of this process. We value your thoughts and feelings regarding taking medication and the impact it will have on your life and activities. Your mental health professional will discuss any new prescriptions or adjustments so that you understand precisely what the medicine is for and what side effects you may experience. Our ultimate goal is to help you feel your best self, and you help us achieve this when you take an active role in your treatment.
