A major aspect of the treatment process for mental health disorders at any psychiatric facility is going to be medication. For some individuals, the use of medication can be a cause for concern, especially if they are unsure as to how they are going to react to certain psychotropic medication. Many individuals may be hesitant to take any type of medication because they fear the potential side effects.
While it is possible for some individuals to experience some side effects, psychotropic medications can be a life saver for many who are struggling with mental health illnesses, such as schizophrenia, depression or bipolar disorder. Medications help to treat the symptoms of mental health disorders which make it easier for individuals to focus on the therapeutic aspects of treatment.(Healthyplace,2014)
