Mental health medication plays a crucial role in treating various mental health conditions. The right treatment plan should be tailored to each person's unique needs.
At Bristol Health, we utilize pharmacogenetic testing and the latest research to create customized treatment plans for you.
Our process for identifying suitable mental health medication involves several key steps to ensure your treatment works effectively and safely:
- Getting the Correct Diagnosis: A correct diagnosis is the cornerstone of effective treatment. Our psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners perform detailed testing to identify your mental health condition accurately before any treatment begins.
