Letter from Dr. Aslami

A person facing a possible psychological problem can have difficulty determining how to go about finding treatment. The mental health world has a bewildering array of services and methods and theories within those services. Additionally, there are professionals of different backgrounds, degrees, and licensures. My advice would be to obtain guidance from a source who has experience screening psychological problems and referring patients to practitioners with a known track record of effective work and ethical conduct. This source could be a trusted internist, neurologist, or OB/GYN.
