Unfortunately, some of us develop a mental health condition that comes with unpleasant (or even harmful) symptoms that we must learn to manage. While we can’t always control the development of these illnesses, we can control how we respond to their development. In other words, we can choose to seek out treatment—treatment that helps us manage our symptoms and live a happier, healthier life again.
Thriveworks Counseling was built on a mission of helping people live happy, successful lives. When you have a mental illness on your hands, it can feel difficult or even impossible to achieve happiness and/or success. But we promise you can do it. And we think that we can help you do it. In addition to counseling, therapy, and life coaching, Thriveworks in Leominster, MA can offer medication management led by an online psychiatrist or nurse practitioner.
Medication can help many different people manage a range of mental health conditions. If you’re taking medication for your condition or you would like to look into the possibility, reach out to Thriveworks Counseling in Leominster, MA. We can help.
Who Can Benefit from Psychiatry?
Everyone is different. When it comes to one’s mental health, it is essential that the individual receives personalized care with their needs in mind. This means treatment can look different from one person to the next, even if they’re struggling with the same illness. For example, one person might prefer to manage their depression with counseling, while another would prefer to take medication and also talk to a counselor every other week.
That said, there are certain mental illnesses that can often be managed effectively with medication. These illnesses include:
- Panic disorder
- Major/minor depression
- Bipolar disorder
- Seasonal affective disorder
- Postpartum depression/anxiety
If you’re experiencing symptoms of any of these mental health conditions (or another illness that we haven’t touched on), please consider reaching out to a psychiatrist. They can help you identify what treatment plan will best help you! Again, Thriveworks Counseling can offer both counseling and medication management.
What Does Medication Management Look Like?
Medication management means working with a provider to ensure that you are taking your medication as prescribed. In addition, it helps your provider understand how this medication is affecting you—and if the needle isn’t moving in the right direction, they can help you find another medication that works better.
The online psychiatrists and nurse practitioners at Thriveworks Counseling in Leominster would focus on a few main goals if you choose to meet with them:
- They would want to understand your mental health condition, including your specific symptoms
- They would want to plan and review your existing treatment plan (if you have one)
- They would recommend medication, based on the needs that they observe
- They would ensure that you know exactly how to take your medication and that you continue to follow these instructions
- They would continue to check in with you to see that you’re happy with your medication and benefitting from its usage
Thriveworks Counseling is honored to help our clients grow, heal, and live better. If you think that you could find value in partnering with a psychiatrist, a nurse practitioner, or another provider, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
