Develop Understanding and Skills to Guide Meaningful Conversations
Pharmacists have become frontline workers when it comes to healthcare, inclusive of mental health. While individuals and families may see a practitioner on an annual or as-needed basis, they visit pharmacies on a more routine cadence. Pharmacists help customers understand how to achieve safe and effective symptom relief using pharmaceuticals, but they also enter into conversations around larger mental health issues like depression, anxiety, substance use disorder, and suicide. Psych Hub helps pharmacists feel more informed about and prepared to discuss these issues. Pharmacists will:
Gain knowledge about mental health symptoms, diagnoses, and evidence-based treatment methods, so they can better support the people they serve.
Discover practical ways to engage with clients around mental health issues in the pharmacy setting.
Develop a more holistic approach to pharmaceutical care that supports mental wellness.
Learn how to identify and reduce the risk of substance use disorder, both with individuals and prescribers.
Receive regular updates with new content and resources.
Courses to Help Pharmacists Engage in
Mental Health Support
Pharmaceuticals can be life-saving tools in the treatment of mental health symptoms, but they often bring up questions for those who use them. The best mental health outcomes are tied to medication in conjunction with therapy. Those who choose not to engage in therapy may benefit from less formal conversations with pharmacists, who can be a vital resource in addressing concerns and guiding the safe and effective use of prescription drugs, or going beyond medication to discuss broader issues of mental wellness. Our courses educate pharmacists about mental health issues and interventions so they can provide informed, compassionate support.
