Medication management

Managing medication for mental illness is an ongoing challenge. There’s a lot to keep track of and side effects can be a bummer. Your loved one might even believe they don’t need medication because they “don’t have a problem” or “can get better without it.”

As a family member, you can have a big impact on helping them find the right medication and stick with it. Bring your love and patience — and a dose of medication knowledge.

Take this lesson to understand the supportive role you can play in medication management. You'll learn about the medications that are used for mental illness, the process for finding the right medication, and how you can talk to your loved one about taking their medication.
