Course Description:

This ce course on mental health medications is based on a publication by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  The publication provides a brief overview of the medications used in the treatment of mental disorders and how these medications work.  The publication also provides an overview of how these medications may interact with other medicines and the known side effects.  The publication is written in simple, easy to read terms, that provide enough detail to help a social worker, counselor or psychologist better understand the medications used for depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and ADHD.

 

This continuing education course serves as an excellent resource for social workers, psychologists, counselors and other licensed mental health professionals who work in the area of mental health counseling or addiction treatment.  Nurses who are not familiar with the medications used in the treatment of mental disorders can also benefit from this course.  This continuing education course on medications provides useful information for professionals who work with clients with mental disorders.  This course may also be helpful for other practitioners, such as midwives and dieticians and nutritionists who may also work with clients who have been diagnosed with a mental disorder and need to improve their skills in working with this population.

 

This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to learn more about mental health related medications.  It is also a good resource for licensed professionals who need continuing education and don’t know a lot about psychotropic medications.
