The Psychiatric Department's goal is the provision of psycho-tropic medication for the alleviation and/or management of symptoms associated with a variety of mental illnesses. Clients who are referred to this program undergo a psychiatric evaluation to determine if he or she would benefit from a medication regime. If so, medication is prescribed and monitored by the psychiatrist and the nurses. Education regarding the proper use of medication, and possible side effects is provided to the client, and they are encouraged to report any emerging concerns promptly to the clinicians.
Psychiatric and medication services are available for children, adolescents and adults. Our psychiatrists and nurses are trained and certified staff with experience in the treatment of a wide range of disorders, including Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorders, Attention Deficit Disorders, Schizophrenia and many others.
