- MENTAL HEALTH OUT-PATIENT
OUTPATIENT CARE-Outpatient care can involve one or more mental health services that don’t require a prolonged stay in a facility. Treatment provided in Outpatient care helps patients learn to cope with stressors and manage their mental health. These services can include counseling, group therapy, medical consultations, and psychiatry. Treatment can be anywhere from short-term counseling, to long-term care plans including therapy and/or medication Outpatient care is the most common treatment for many mental health problems due to its lower cost, better flexibility to patients needs and schedules, and a larger selection of providers. Outpatient care should only be applied when constant support is unnecessary and it is healthier for the patient to remain in their environment to experience stressors and learn to cope with professional guidance. This approach is often the best course of action for patients with problems like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, eating disorders, depression, and anxiety..
