Standards of Care in Mental Health

Standards of Care in Mental Health

Description

Mental health issues are at an all-time high. Prescription sales are being dominated by agents used for mental health complaints, such as depression, anxiety, and bipolar II. Why, with so many anti-depressants, anxiolytics and “mood stabilizers” being prescribed? How do these prescription drugs work? Are pharmaceuticals the best option available?

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize common prescription drugs that can cause and/or worsen depression, anxiety, bipolar II
  • Be able to list nutrient deficiencies—secondary to diet and prescription drugs—that may precipitate mental health issues
  • Know the difference between direct and indirect effects of drugs as they impact mental health
  • Explore the disconnect/incongruence between current standards of care and actual evidence

Learn for a Cause

Instructor

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy from the Medical College of Virginia/Virginia Commonwealth University, in 1988. After practicing as a retail pharmacist in the greater Richmond area for a decade, I attended Bastyr University, earning a doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine in 2004. Because of my unique education and training, I understand both conventional medicine as well as natural forms of healing. And because I’ve been asked to teach on pharmacology/pharmacy related topics to my beloved naturopathic profession, I study them constantly, going deeper into the intricacies and nuances of the agents and uncovering some astonishing information that I think YOU (and your patients/clients) would benefit from knowing!
