Perspectives from an Inpatient Psychiatrist | Mind Matters | La Amistad

November 15, 2023

This month we talked with Dr. Alison Weiss, MD, psychiatrist at La Amistad Behavioral Health Services. Topics include what it is like being a psychiatrist, what she treats on a daily basis and what she is seeing from a medical perspective in our children, our hospitals and our society. Join us as we take a candid look at levels of care and common themes we encounter with our children at home and in a therapeutic setting.
