As a mental health care provider, I have made the difficult decision not to accept insurance. Though some may see this as a barrier to care, I believe it affords me the opportunity to truly spend the necessary time with each of my patients. When it comes to maternal mental health, I think there is a great need for more education and meaningful conversations surrounding mental health care. Women should be armed with information and empowered to make the best choices for themselves and their families. By forgoing traditional insurance regulations, I am able to provide a level of care that I feel fully honors the unique needs of each individual patient.
As you prepare for your first psychiatric intake appointment, it’s normal to feel a range of emotions, including uncertainty, anxiety, and hope. During this initial meeting, you can expect to speak with Lauren, psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, who will gather background information about your medical history, symptoms, and personal circumstances. They may ask about your current lifestyle, including your daily routine, sleep patterns, and diet. This information will help your provider understand your unique challenges and develop an individualized treatment plan. It’s essential to approach this conversation with honesty and openness, as accurate information will help your provider offer the most effective support. Remember, your mental health is just as important as your physical health, and seeking help is a crucial step on the path to recovery.
