How to Prepare

It is worthwhile to take some time preparing before your next appointment with your psychiatrist so that you can get the maximum value out of it. Some things to consider are:

  • Prepare a list of the most important issues you want to discuss with your psychiatrist.
  • New symptoms or changes in existing or prior symptoms. Consider keeping a day-to-day journal of your symptoms so it’s easier to keep track of how your symptoms change or affect your quality of life.
  • Any changes in your overall physical health.
  • Your family’s history of physical and mental health conditions.
  • Find out how others feel you are doing, especially family, friends, and co-workers who care about you.
  • Bring a list of all the current medications and substances you take. Include prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, supplements, herbal products, and any recreational drugs.

Finally, one of the most important things to remember is to carry an open heart and an open mind. Mend Psychiatry is here to help you and be an aide in helping you achieve your healthiest mental space. Contact us today with any questions or to schedule a meeting with a mental health professional.
