Our leadership would never conduct an interview like that. We follow a regimented questionnaire designed by the Department of Labor and Industries. We can be subject to penalty if we don’t follow the DOL guidelines hence why this is not true. I’m sorry this person feels it necessary to be so hostile. Less

What types of medications do people take when they have mental health issues. That was so strange! I'm not a RN or MD.

2 Answers

It depends on the diagnosis, again that is something to ask a RN.

If you're working in the mental health field with clients, you need to know the medications. That is not a question specific to an MD or RN. Antidepressants, Antianxiety, Mood Stabilizers, AntiPsychotic, and Stimulants should have been some of the things an individual working closely with mentally ill clients should know. Less
