Mental Health

Many Individuals with Mental Health problems don't get the proper care they need because of not getting the right treatment. A pharmacist can be vital in providing access to services to support a person's mental health. This will help get the most from their medicines but also their general well being and health.

Make mental health care a core part of existing and new services

Services offered by ALL RX pharmacy would routinely include the consideration of mental health. It is vital that in a general setting mental health is not removed and treated as something unique to other care. ALL RX Pharmacy considers the mental health problems when talking to patients that are newly diagnosed with a long-term condition.

In addition, at ALL RX Pharmacy when we see a patient, or if a pharmacist reviews a patient's medicines, The pharmacist would know to engage in conversations about mental health. When patients are discharged and referred to ALL RX for a follow up care, the mental health needs are always advised.


Early identification of mental health problems

Early identification of anxiety and depression is a potential role for our pharmacists working in any setting. Our Pharmacists and their staff are aware of common causes ( ex. Bereavement or diagnosis of a long term illness) in order to identify an illness early. Some trigger points would prompt the question “ How are you feeling?”

At ALL RX services that are geared towards early identification are integrated with local care pathways with signposting options, also referral criteria and pathways are shown to ensure that an individual centered and systemic approach is taken.

Integrate services for ongoing monitoring of medicines

Even with identifying individuals that suffer from mental health problems, our pharmacists and staff can also support the potential ongoing treatment and evaluation of existing patients. Pharmacists at ALL RX can support reviews of long term medicines given regular trigger points to show need and open communication with the team.
