Peninsula Outpatient Centers offer services provided by a Psychiatrist or a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner to evaluate an individual’s need for psychiatric medications. We also provide ongoing monitoring of the effectiveness of these medications in reducing the symptoms described in the evaluation session. The initial evaluation is part of an overall Behavioral Health evaluation as there are many factors affecting the onset of a psychiatric condition. It is frequently recommended that treatment with psychiatric medications be accompanied by psychotherapy sessions. Those services are also available at Peninsula Outpatient Centers.
