Comprehensive Mental Health Evaluations & Medication Management

At RWJBarnabas Health Medical Group, our skilled, compassionate psychiatrists and behavioral health providers realize how mental health is just as important as physical health.

Our dedicated experts can help patients manage their day-to-day symptoms to improve their quality of life, beginning with a thorough assessment conducted by a psychiatrist or behavioral health provider. During this evaluation, patients can discuss their current situation, concerns, and any symptoms that have been disruptive to your daily life. If necessary, our treatment team will work with the patient’s loved ones to understand their history and recommend a plan of treatment that best suits their condition. Treatment may include talk therapy or medication or a combination of both.

Some of the various psychotropic medications psychiatrists prescribe include:

  • Anti-depressants
  • Mood stabilizers
  • Anti-psychotics
  • Anti-anxiety meds
  • Stimulants
  • And more

You may want to consider seeing a psychiatrist or behavioral health provider if you are suffering from the following:

  • Inability to control your emotions
  • Changes in sleeping patterns
  • Substance abuse
  • Poor school and/or work performance
  • Social isolation
  • Excessive worry or anxiety
  • Uncontrollable sadness that persists for weeks
  • Any other distressing mental symptoms
