Welcome to Mental Health Notes!!

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

We are excited to bring you this column and plan to use it to meet several important purposes.  First, we will post news about CPFS and the services we offer.  We are continually refining and improving our range of services so that we can provide “state-of-the-art” mental health treatment to our patients. In this column we will describe these treatments, as well as give you information about continuing education training our clinicians receive.

Frequently, local, national, and world events occur that are distressing and that present challenges to our efforts to cope.  We intend for this column to serve as a resource that can support effective coping skills and promote resilience in the face of these challenges.  We will provide specific suggestions designed to help us better cope with these events.

We will use this column to educate our patients (and other readers) about various mental health topics.  While there is an enormous volume of information available on the internet, we feel there is a need for a local source of mental health information that is based on sound, scientific research.  All of the information in this column will be supported by such research and we plan to provide appropriate links for those who desire more information than space will allow us to provide here.

It’s easy to see why we’re excited about this feature of our website.  We invite you to check back often as we regularly update this column. –Dr. Barling
