Video Transcription

Psychiatrists spend the most of their time talking to their patients, to get a sense of how their mental health is, and particularly, reviewing any medications that they’re taking, making sure that they’re on the appropriate dose. And thinking with them if there’s a big decision to be made, for example, about coming off medication or if someone’s thinking about getting pregnant, things that are happening in their lives that would mean they’d need to think quite carefully about what the next step is.
