Psychiatric & Medication Management

Outpatient mental health services at Clatsop Behavioral Health Services will include the provision of the evaluation and diagnosis of mental illnesses, medication management, and psychological testing.

 

Medications are often used to help people with psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and thought disorders such as schizophrenia. The prescribing clinician and/or a LMHNP from CBH will meet with the individual prescribed the medications on a scheduled basis, and will review the effects of the medication treatment and help them manage side effects, medication or dosage changes that may be necessary. Most individuals will receive a written prescription during their visit to the outpatient office to be filled at the pharmacy of their choice.
