Your Referral Resource for Difficult to Treat Depression, Anxiety, and ADHD
Are you ever in a situation where you have a patient suffering from depression, anxiety, or ADHD type disorders and think to yourself, "I don't know what to do for this patient? Their mental illness is interfering with their overall health recovery. Is there anything that could speed up their healing? ”
Regardless of whether the individual is recovering from an injury or surgery, or managing a chronic illness, untreated mental illness affects the entire body. So it makes sense for you to optimize the mental well-being of your patients to ensure their optimum wellbeing.
"My patient has tried both psychotherapy and medication," you may think. Considering how much research is going on in the brain and behavior fields, aren't there more effective treatments available?
Yes, there are. And we would be happy to be your resource for those in addition to traditional medication management and therapy
Some of the most innovative treatments I am excited about are:
Treatment that does not require medication and utilizes MRI for patients who have not responded to two or more antidepressants-TMS
A long-acting Ketamine therapy for treating treatment-resistant depression or chronic suicidal thoughts with Spravato/Esketamine.
For patients who are at risk or have difficulty tolerating medications, integrative psychiatry combines natural remedies with advanced conventional treatments.
We also believe in not just symptom alleviation but taking a person on a full health journey from illness to wellness. Therefore, we have gathered many tools for prevention and wellness for you (like a depression prevention tool kit for health professionals-https://www.stresstojoy.com/hwp) and your patients (https://shifahealth.org/learn) on this website. I invite you to explore and benefit.
