Cross Training with Newport County Community Mental Health Center Continues

Mary Jane Creely, VP of Nursing at NCCMHC, conducts a training class on psychiatric medications for clinical staff of VNS.

The fourth of eight educational classes on mental health training issues was conducted at VNS.  Mary Jane Creely, VP of Nursing at the Newport County Community Mental Health Center, presented a session on psychiatric medications.  She reviewed the classes of commonly prescribed psychiatric medications, discussed indicationa for use and potential side effects, and helped to understand the importance of adherence in successful client outcomes.  We learned that there are no perfect medications - all have potential side effects - and that they target symptoms rather than cure mental illness.
