Taking Charge

When meeting with your mental health specialist, remember to be completely open about what you’re experiencing and what your goals for the future are.

Ask your specialist to explain your treatment options to you and write them down so you remember.

Keep a log of how you’re feeling and how the different aspects of your treatment are going so that you can accurately explain them to your provider on your next visit.

In addition to your treatment plan, you should strive to live well in all aspects of your life.

Eat right, exercise, avoid drugs and alcohol and stay connected with friends and family.
