Conquering Recovery: Managing Mental Health Medications
For those living with a mental health condition, medication is often discussed as a form of treatment. While medications can provide great benefits for our mental health, you may experience new challenges when starting them. It is important to learn about your medications and options to ensure the best course of treatment for your individual needs. In this webinar, we will be specifically discussing SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors).
Join MHA and Sutter Health for this free 60-minute webinar where we will:
- Discuss both pros and cons of mental health medications
- Review what to expect when starting a new medication
- Learn about the potential side effects SSRIs may cause and how to recognize if a medication may not be right for you
- Discuss recommendations for treatment beyond a medication-only model
