How long are appointments?

It all depends on what you're being treated for and the type of treatment course your provider wishes to use.

Providers that can write for medications typically have 15 to 30 minute follow up appointments after an initial appointment of 60 to 90 minutes.  Make sure to inquire about typical times for your provider so that you go into the treatment knowing the expectations.

There are some agreements between patients and mental health providers that span years while others are just a few months; it all depends on when you're beginning to feel better and what your treatment goals are.

What is a consultation?

In "doctor-speak," a consultation is when a physician discusses treatment options and possibilities after reviewing a record or chart full of information and then gives an opinion.  Most often, the opinion is just that:  professional advice that does not commit the person receiving the information to act on said information but is instead meant to be an informational catalyst for seeking out a relationship with a mental health provider.
