Course Description
This course is based on a publication of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) about medications used in the treatment of mental illness. It is written in simple terms and reviews relief of symptoms and the four major categories of psychotropic medication. It includes classes of drugs within each category, for example the different types of antidepressant medications and gives the reader information about effectiveness and side effects. This publication also reviews the use of psychotropic medications in special groups such as children, the elderly and women of childbearing age. This publication is an excellent primer for the mental health professional and provides the practitioner with a great deal of much needed information.

Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course. This course may also be helpful for other practitioners, such as midwives and dieticians and nutritionists who may work with clients who take psychotropic medications.  This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who do not know a lot about psychotropic medication and who wish to develop their clinical skills.
