Psychiatric Assessment

In simplest terms, the psychiatric assessment consists of gathering relevant information in order to formulate a diagnosis and treatment plan. 

Genetic Testing

For people who have tried multiple medications with little or no benefit, further pharmacological treatment can be a daunting process. In certain cases, genetic testing may be recommended.

Medication Management

Not all mental health issues require medicine. However, medication can be a powerful tool in moderate to severe psychiatric illness. Sometimes it is the primary mode of treatment. Often, it is one component of a more comprehensive approach.
