PSYCHIATRIC SERVICES

Empowerment Resource Center offers comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and psychiatric medication management for low-income adults in the Metro Atlanta area. Our multi-disciplinary staff includes licensed psychiatrist, advanced practice nurses, social workers, and counselors trained to work from person centered perspective with serious and persistent mental illness.  Our primary focus is on those with limited resources.

Research has shown that a combined approach of therapy and medication is more effective than either treatment alone.  All clients must see a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) first.  The LCSW will arrange for your psychiatric evaluation.  After an initial evaluation for medication, your psychiatrist will help you manage your medication and  monitor your progress during follow-up appointments.  Concurrent therapy will continue to focus on dealing with underlying issues and skill building.  

At ERC, we believe in collaborating with fellow mental health professionals, physicians, and other care providers to be able to provide our clients with the best possible care. If you'd like to make a referral, please head to our Referrals page and/or call us at 404-526-1145.

What happens after my evaluation?

  • A treatment plan will be established between you and your psychiatrist that may include the use of certain medications
  • Laboratory tests may be obtained to clarify the diagnosis or to rule the medical causes.
