Do Psychiatric Medications Really Help?
Psychiatrist Dr. Leonard Fagin will facilitate an interactive session responding to concerns and questions about medication used in current psychiatric practice. In particular, Dr. Fagin will cover how psychiatric medication interventions may interact with psychotherapeutic and counselling efforts.
Following a brief introduction describing the main categories of psychotropic medications, their indications, and side effects, the floor will be open to questions.
Participants are encouraged to bring general questions or share their own experience around psychiatric medication from a personal or a clinical perspective.
This event is open to all, and we encourage those from both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds to attend.
