Psychiatrist Dr. Francie Broghammer talks about medications for mental illness including when they are necessary, some of the most common medications and how they work, and how the treatment of mental illness continues to advance.

Top 3 Take-Aways:

  1. 1 in 5 people will struggle with mental illness at some point in their lives. It is not a failure.
  2. Psychiatric medications don’t change who you are. When a medication is needed, it doesn’t change your personality, and you might not need to be on them for the rest of your life.
  3. When in doubt: ask your doctor.
