With our psychiatric services, we provide a comprehensive approach to mental health care. Our psychiatric nurse practitioners, highly trained in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health conditions, can prescribe a range of medications to manage symptoms associated with various disorders.
While the Counseling and Wellness Center of Pittsburgh has historically been focused on individual, couples therapy and family counseling along with wellness offerings like yoga, meditation and reiki, we understand that medication management can be an important part of the treatment process. That’s why we are excited to offer psychiatric services for adults, child and adolescent psychiatry and medication management as part of our treatment options.

Understanding Medication Management
Medication management for mental health involves the careful monitoring and adjustment of medications used to treat mental health conditions. This process typically involves several steps:
- Evaluation: A psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner evaluates a patient’s symptoms, medical history, and any medications they are currently taking to determine if medication is necessary.
- Prescription: If medication is deemed appropriate, the psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner prescribes a medication and explains its benefits and potential side effects.
- Monitoring: The patient is closely monitored to ensure that the medication is working effectively and that there are no adverse side effects. Monitoring may include regular appointments with a mental health professional and/or tracking symptoms with a mood or symptom journal.
- Adjustments: The medication may need to be adjusted over time to ensure that it is working effectively and that the patient is not experiencing any negative side effects. This may involve changing the dosage, switching to a different medication, or combining medications.
It’s important to note that medication management for mental health is not a one-size-fits-all approach. The type of medication prescribed, dosage, and frequency of medication use may vary depending on the individual’s unique needs and response to treatment. It’s essential to work closely with a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner to ensure that medication is used safely and effectively.
