Episode 15 - Talking With A Psychiatrist

Through Rough Waters with Zach Allen

Tuesday, June 18, 2024 - 45 minutes

In this episode, Zach & Kevin are joined by Dr. Aaron Plattner as we begin a new series about the role of medication in mental health. We discuss how medicine actually works in the brain, how physicians go about prescribing medicine, and how therapy and medication work together. We also answer a listener’s question about why some people need medication for life, and some only need it for a season.
