Shared Decision Making

Decisions about treatment are often most effective when they are made collaboratively, with the provider offering information about treatment options (including potential benefits, risks, and side effects) and the person living with the mood disorder and their caregiver making an informed decision that accounts for the person’s treatment goals and preferences. These articles, first published on our advocacy website Care for Your Mind, help you understand what’s involved in shared decision making.
