    263: [UNICORN] Breaking Down Barriers to Treating Mental Health

    263: [UNICORN] Breaking Down Barriers to Treating Mental Health

    Depression and anxiety disorders affect so many of us. Healthcare providers in every field have patients with mental health disorders and often don’t know the best way to treat them or best place to refer. Each one of us has also struggled with our own mental health needs at least one point in our careers. As providers, we want to be able to provide the best possible care to our patients. But where do we turn?

    That’s my guest, Dr. Mikal Bailey, comes in! Dr. Bailey has been a PA for over 20 years, with almost all of his career focused on the neurosciences. Dr. Bailey was tired of sitting across from patients with mental health needs and not having good treatment options for them. So he opened his own outpatient mental health treatment facility!

    Instead of treating with a barrage of pills, his facility uses non-traditional treatments, such as IV ketamine, S-ketamine and transcranial magnetic stimulation. 

    Listen in to learn how we can all become better, more compassionate healthcare providers when it comes to addressing our patients’ mental health needs. Dr. Bailey discusses actionable tips any provider can implement, regardless of what field you’re working in. 

    Dr. Bailey and I also discuss the road from clinical PA to entrepreneur. If you’re thinking of one day taking the leap to building your own business, tune in to hear steps that will help you succeed.

@Miriamkorthopa ,

Excellent resource and information for PAs!

I wish I had found this podcast sooner! As a PA for 23 years I was definitely feeling burnout creeping in. Tracy explains everything that I was feeling and why. She explains how PAs can advocate for themselves and each other, plus has great interviews with other providers who share their knowledge and expertise as well!

Kate EHC ,

Empowering and Informative

Tracy is not only an expert in her field as a healthcare provider, but also in various areas that branch off of that, such as finance, work-life balance, and more. Her podcast is both informative and empowering. As a PA, I had always felt like the field was relatively limiting, but Tracy makes it feel otherwise!

dudemanmcgee ,

A must listen for all PAs

I have been searching for a podcast that covers medicine from the PA perspective and this took the cake. There is a wealth of knowledge to be gained listening to Tracy and her guests that will be sure to inspire many new grads and seasoned PAs alike. I am looking forward to future episodes and seeing the PA network grow!
