It’s time to change our approach to mental health care.

Traditional psychiatry focuses on symptom reduction and management, and a “medication-first” approach. As a result, too many patients are misdiagnosed as treatment-resistant, with many never finding adequate care. Patients are desperately searching for alternative, whole-person treatments. If you are thinking to yourself “there must be a better way to treat my mental health patients!” – you are correct.

There is a more effective, evidence-based model of treatment that we teach at Psychiatry Redefined: a comprehensive paradigm based on functional medicine, integrative psychiatry and precision medicine. Functional and integrative psychiatry is changing the landscape of mental health treatment by addressing the underlying causes of mental illness.

We are here to help you navigate the complexities of functional and precision psychiatry, and train you on how to incorporate these approaches into daily practice for your patients. Learn more about functional and integrative psychiatry below, and how we can support your clinical goals.

“When we combine what we know as psychiatrists, with the roots of the problem – which typically are a combination of genetics, biological, and environmental factors – we have better outcomes. I can tell you, I’m no longer bored with my job. I love what I do. I do it very well, and I have better patient satisfaction than I ever did before, because my patients do get better. We want other people to join what we’re doing, to learn about us, and to learn that this is the moment we can change and treat patients better.”

– Mariela Podolski, MD, Psychiatry Redefined Faculty

What is Functional & Integrative Psychiatry?

An integrative and functional approach to mental health is a whole-person, precision medicine approach to care. This approach targets the root causes of mental illness and the underlying biochemistry affecting the brain and behavior (precision psychiatry). With functional medicine testing, we can identify and treat a patient’s unique deficiencies and imbalances, providing them with more effective treatment and the chance to finally heal. The functional and integrative approaches we teach are meant to enhance traditional psychiatric treatment, and can be used in conjunction with medication, rather than relying solely on medication. However, oftentimes, functional and integrative approaches can eliminate the need for medication entirely.

Why is Functional & Integrative Psychiatry Important?

Functional and integrative psychiatry focuses on personalized and root-cause treatment, rather than merely managing symptoms or medications. This is essential for the field and future of mental health care: there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to treating any medical condition – why should psychiatry be any different? This precise and comprehensive approach empowers you to tailor patient interventions to each individual for optimal outcomes and relief, while actively raising the standards in mental health care. Precision psychiatry is the future of mental health care.

We are often asked by clinicians how they can apply precision and integrative psychiatry into their practice. We encourage you to explore our Integrative Psychiatry Fellowship led by functional pioneer and expert, James Greenblatt, MD, as it provides the optimal clinical foundation to get you started. In this Fellowship, you’ll gain a supportive team of faculty, peers and community mentors all dedicated to helping you learn and apply personalized, functional and precision medicine with your patients. Through online and live instruction, we’ll carefully work with you to develop the skills to accurately diagnose, analyze and resolve the underlying causes of mental illness.

Our Fellowship faculty teaches patient care based on clinical experience; they’ll distill the most important clinical concepts to use in daily practice, and guide you month-by-month on how to create individual treatment plans for various mental health conditions. And with their mentorship, you’ll gain essential practice management strategies to help you build a thriving practice.

Plus, you’ll join a dedicated community of peers and mentors to support your study and success. You’ll get two years of faculty-led live discussions, community support and feedback on real patient cases, ongoing peer collaboration, and a network of global resources. Past Fellows repeatedly say that the faculty and community interaction is the most valuable part of the Fellowship, and enrolling was the best decision they ever made for their practice.
