Some people think that only the most serious or severe cases of mental illness demand the need for medication.

  • Antidepressants

Should I Meet with a Psychiatrist?

Psychiatrists are healthcare professionals who have remarkable knowledge, skills, experience, and training in the mental health field. As we touched on previously, sometimes medication is an important part of one’s treatment plan. For those that do take medication as part of their treatment for any given mental illness, proper medication management is vital.

For instance, one should not take too much or too little of their medicine; they also shouldn’t take it at night if they’re supposed to take it in the morning; and they need to know whether or not to take it with food! Often, there are very specific instructions that detail how one should take their medicine. Fortunately, the psychiatrists and nurse practitioners at Thriveworks Columbia will be sure that you know exactly how to take your medication. They will also check in with you to make sure the medication you’re on is helping you and continues to help you. If you need to switch to a different medication, so be it.

She helped the light shine in!

★★★★★
I struggled with self loathing and dark attitudes about myself for many years. My attitudes were affecting my relationships on a variety of levels. I felt like a failure. I was afraid to take my life but I didn’t want to live any more. My wife suggested I get counseling, but I resisted thinking I could fix me. It did not work. Helene Diop took me through a year of counseling via FaceTime that finally shed light on my dark experience. She helped me put my life in perspective and actively illuminated my understanding of why I felt the way I did. She provided clear, fruitful strategies for thinking that have changed my life. She, truly, helped the light shine in during my darkest hour! I’m a happy man, today!
