Q3. What will happen at my first appointment?
The first appointment is referred to as the “intake appointment”. At this first appointment, your provider will ask you many questions to gain insight about your current circumstances. These questions may inquire about the types of problems you are experiencing, your personal and family history, and medical history. You will then develop a “treatment plan” with your provider, which serves as a baseline for measuring your progress in treatment.

Length of mental health treatment varies depending on the needs and medical necessity of each individual.

Medication management responses averages a range of 4-6 weeks on the correct medication and dosage, however, individual responses will vary.
