One of the significant impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic is that many individuals are facing mental health challenges. There has been an increasing demand for mental health resources from patients. With the prevalence and rise of incidents of mental illness such as depression and anxiety, pharmacists need to understand the signs and symptoms of mental illness and learn how to help patients in distress.

This course is developed to meet these learning needs. It will review three mental illnesses (ADHD, anxiety, and depression), and take a practical approach to look at them through the use of common cases that you would encounter in your routine pharmacy practice. The course explores patients’ experiences and optimizing care while examining cases that are grounded in therapeutics and therapeutic knowledge.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify and resolve common drug therapy problems for individuals with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), and major depressive disorder (MDD)
  • Develop pharmaceutical care plans/recommendations to solve drug therapy problems for individuals with ADHD, GAD, and MDD
