From anxiety disorders, present in nearly 30% of the country’s population, to more severe mood and psychotic disorders, psychopharmacological interventions (otherwise known as medication management) have been a mainstay of mental health treatment. These treatments have been used to improve quality of life, to improve reality testing, to prevent death, or to allow for the effective participation in psychotherapy. Over the past 20 to 30 years our understanding of the brain and functional neurobiology of the 100-billion neurons of which it is comprised has skyrocketed. This has consequently led to an abundance of new treatment modalities to target the array of mental diseases. We will explore the “state of the art” with regard to these interventions that encompass medication, interventional procedures and individualized strategies based on individual genetics.
