Talk therapy, or psychotherapy, is an effective mental health treatment. However, it isn’t the only form of mental health treatment. Many individuals also find value in taking medication, sometimes even alongside talk therapy. Think about it: when people have high blood pressure, a combination of interventions can help: medication, exercise, diet changes, and so on. In the same regard, when people are struggling with, say, depression or anxiety, a combination of medication, talk therapy, and self-care can help.
Start by doing what’s necessary, then do what’s possible;
and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
–Francis of Assisi
If an individual does determine a need or express interest in taking a psychiatric medication, it’s important that they secure medication management help. Both nurse practitioners and psychiatrists can provide medication management, which involves prescribing said medication and ensuring that the individual takes their medication properly.

Who Needs or Can Benefit from Medication Management?
Many people think that medication management is only for those who are struggling severely: those with major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, etc. In reality, medication management is for people with varying disorders and varying degrees. Psychiatric medication can be useful for someone who is struggling with mild depression or anxiety; it can help someone who is struggling with postpartum depression; it can benefit someone with adjustment disorder. Again, there are many different scenarios in which medication can prove helpful.
Psychiatric medication is not one size fits all. The online psychiatrists and nurse practitioners at Thriveworks Counseling will work with you to determine which type of medication might best help you.
