The introduction of a new bill into the Oregon Senate means that the state could get a new, more comprehensive mental health system. This bill would establish crisis care, mobile mental health care teams, and fund more full-time mental health specialists across the state. If the bill passes, it will help individuals in towns like Tigard, OR who struggle with mental health issues.

Treatment and Medication

The treatment of mental health disorders often involves a multifaceted approach. One way to treat these disorders is with medications. While these medications do not cure mental health disorders, they do allow people to manage their symptoms and feel better in general. Some medications are used for short-term treatment while others may be used for longer periods of time. The type of medication and the dosage depends on the individual’s needs. Several different types of these medications are described below:

  • Antipsychotics. Used to treat schizophrenia and disorders related to schizophrenia, these drugs help individuals deal with hallucinations, delusions, and breaks from reality. Certain antipsychotics are also used to treat bipolar disorder.
  • Antidepressants. These medications help bring balance to the individual’s brain chemistry.
  • Mood stabilizers. Often given to those with bipolar disorder, these medications stabilize an individual’s moods.
  • Benzodiazepines (anti-anxiety medications). These begin working faster than antidepressants and are commonly used to treat anxiety disorders.
