NAMI/CPNPF Survey Finds 75 Percent of Individuals with Mental Health Conditions and their Caregivers Don't Receive Medication Monitoring from Pharmacists
Date:12/13/2012

ther medical conditions," said NAMI Executive Director Michael J. Fitzgerald. "Pharmacists can serve as a first line of defense in identifying medication issues to be discussed with a person's doctor—before any concern turns into an adverse event."

"This groundbreaking survey reports the observations of those receiving services related to their mental health medications from community pharmacists. The findings identify important opportunities to expand the commitment of the pharmacy community to greater numbers of individuals living with mental illness," said CPNPF President Charles F. Caley.

NAMI conducted the survey in conjunction with the CPNPF. There are approximately 2,000 "psychiatric pharmacists" in the United States who specialize in mental health medications, but there are not enough to directly support the number of individuals being treated with mental medications. Nationally, over 118,000 pharmacists work in community settings representing 43 percent of the profession overall, playing an important role in mental health care.
