What Is a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner? Who Can Benefit?
PMHNPs are mental health professionals who hold advanced certifications and training in order to evaluate and treat psychiatric disorders and syndromes through the use of psychotropic medication as well as natural treatments, such as vitamins, supplements, and dietary or lifestyle changes.
A psychiatric nurse practitioner is experienced in treating many syndromes and with varying degrees of severity. Some examples of these may include but are not limited to:
- Mood Disorders such as depression or anxiety
- Attention Deficit and Hyperactive Disorder (ADD and ADHD) in both children and adults
- Bipolar Disorder
- Sleep Disorders
- Thought Disorders
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD)
- Psychotic Disorders such as Schizophrenia, Delusion Disorder, and Substance-Induced Psychotic Disorder
- Pain Management
Your mental health concerns and needs are unique to you and for this reason, our psychiatric nurse practitioners in Wilbraham will work with you to understand your needs and help you find the right solution. They will work alongside you to understand how changes and adapt your treatment to reflect that. We care about your mental health and want to help you live the healthiest life.
Are Psychiatry Sessions Remote or In-Person?
We are currently offering both in person and online mental health service via telehealth video and phone sessions in our Wilbraham office on Boston Road.
Our offices are clean, comfortable, and regularly sanitized for your safety and peace of mind. We have a family friendly waiting room that is more welcoming of noise and play, as well as a quieter room for you to have a cup of coffee or tea while you wait for your session time.
If you have travel or time limitations or would just prefer to meet with your psychiatrist or nurse practitioner virtually, our clinicians are always available for remote telehealth. It’s an easy process where a clinician will send a link to a privacy-protected (HIPAA compliant) chat room, and you will be able to have an online session.
How Can I Begin Seeing a Psychiatrist or Nurse Practitioner in Wilbraham?
All you have to do is call us at (413) 372-6208! Our schedulers are available all day, as well on weekends and evenings. They will be able to help get you set up with psychiatric consultation at a time that works for you. We don’t have a waitlist and appointments are available as soon as tomorrow!
If you prefer to browse our clinicians bios online and reserve an appointment time through our online portal, a scheduling assistant will be happy to contact you to complete your scheduled appointment.
