Psychiatry — Mental Health (APRN)

by Helen Farrell, MD

Psychiatric disorders affect an individual's thinking, mood, and behavior. They can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, environmental factors, life events, and brain chemistry.

It is essential for community-based nurse practitioners to have a strong understanding of psychiatric disorders and their associated symptoms, as well as the available treatment options and best practices for managing these conditions. This knowledge enables them to provide effective care and support to patients, improving their overall quality of life and helping them to achieve better health outcomes.
