Is it Time to Leave the Doctor’s Office?

Health outcomes are often determined by factors outside of the hospital and clinic. How can psychiatrists address mental health challenges before they become emergencies?

In this Mental Health Minute, Jasmin Zapata, MD, discusses young women’s mental health and encourages clinicians to engage with the community—outside of medical settings—to promote good mental health.

Dr Zapata is a pediatrician and author of the Beyond Beautiful books, a series offering mental health guidance to young women and girls.
