Last time, we spoke about defining mental health. Today, Dr. Reader joins Dr. Hammerstedt to continue down this road and talk about when to use or not use pharmaceuticals for mental health, and what we might be worried about rightly or wrongly. We discuss non pharmaceutical alternatives, and what it looks like to start pharmaceuticals. Dr. Reader also covers what we should be asking our Physicians and prescribers when they do prescribe these medications.
