The Lawlis Peavey PNP Center offers a 2 Day multifaceted integrated assessment leading to a plan for effective treatment of depression. Brainwave patterns, anxiety, ineffectual coping strategies are all aspects contributing to depression.

TREATMENT DIRECTION

Many individual experiences have shown the Lawlis Peavey PNP Center that treatment resistant mood challenge involves interaction of several levels of functioning. A treatment plan which involves coordinating several specialty components is necessary in order to provide the level of care needed. The principle mission of the Lawlis Peavey PNP Center is to provide a complete diagnostic plan with follow-up direction for treatment and training. Where possible, for families in distant localities, qualified and/or certified professional recommendations will be given. For local residents, many of the behavioral medicine treatment issues may be provided through the Lawlis Peavey PNP Center in coordination with other recommended services.
