Silver Lining Behavioral Health continues integrating medical and behavioral health services with individuals of all ages, couples, and families. We are constantly examining approaches to medication management, illness management, accurate diagnosis, and prevention. Mental illness impacts millions of people across the globe, but a shortage of healthcare providers often makes receiving comprehensive mental health extremely difficult.
People are complex, multidimensional beings. It is impossible to treat an individual without considering their environment, family history, age, psychosocial history, and physical health. To accurately assess and assist individuals, it is often necessary to include medical intervention. Integrating Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners into Silver Lining Care’s therapy services assures that individuals who need medication can be helped promptly.
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners can conduct psychiatric evaluations, be liaisons to healthcare providers, run multidisciplinary supervisory groups, and prescribe medication for conditions like Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Attacks, IBS, Social Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Rumination, and ADHD, to name a few. They are also well-versed in relationships, family dynamics, and life-stage issues. These professionals can facilitate therapy groups as well as provide illness education. They are essential when working with multiple diagnoses and routinely become consultants for therapists focusing on clients with medical conditions. Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners genuinely close the gap between behavioral health and physical well-being. And we are very excited to be able to offer that service.
Silver Lining Care is launching a medication management program by integrating Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners into our line of services. Kindly contact us to schedule a meeting with our therapists or a Nurse Practitioner for a psychiatric evaluation.
