Mental Health Treatment Options - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
You or someone you know may have been diagnosed with a mental health problem. This video will show you some ways that could make the problem a lot better. While there are currently no known cures for most mental illness, the good news is that recovery is possible. Most people diagnosed with a mental illness can experience relief from their symptoms by actively participating in an individual treatment plan. Common treatment options include psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy or counseling, and medication. Medications for mental illnesses are thought to work on your brain cells, called neurons. In doing so, they increase brain activity in certain areas or decrease activity in others. This can help reduce your symptoms. For example, some medications work to make more naturally occurring chemical messengers available. These chemicals pass signals between your brain cells. It is important for brain cells to have enough of these chemicals in the space between them to pass the signals. If you have depression, you may not have enough of certain chemical messengers in this space. In general, the use of antidepressant medications results in the buildup of certain chemical messengers in this space. This buildup improves signal transfer, and your mood may improve as a result. Other medications work differently or in ways not yet known. In addition to depression, other common mental illnesses that can be treated with medications include schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, also known as manic depressive disorder, and many others. If you have schizophrenia, your health care professional or doctor may prescribe antipsychotic medications. A mood stabilizer is usually the first choice as medication taken on a regular basis if you have bipolar disorder. Other medications prescribed for bipolar disorder include antipsychotics, antidepressants, or drugs known as atypical antipsychotics. Mental illnesses are common. You may have a mental illness not discussed in this video, or you may have been prescribed other types of medication. Talk to your health care professional or doctor if you have questions about your medication or have any side effects. It is important to take your medications as directed by your health care professional or doctor. Do not stop taking them unless your health care professional or doctor tells you to. If you stop taking your medications, your symptoms may reappear.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

Donald W. Marcari

"For modern audiences, it is absolutely essential to use medical demonstrative evidence to convey the severity and extent of physical injuries to a jury. Your company's high quality illustrations of our client's discectomy surgery, combined with strong expert testimony, allowed the jury to fully appreciate the significance of our client's injuries.

We are very pleased with a verdict exceeding $297,000.00, far in excess of the $20,000.00 initially offered by the defendant. The medical demonstrative evidence provided by Medical Legal Art was an asset we could not have afforded to have been without."

Todd J. Kenyon

"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch (and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!). I look forward to our continued professional relationship."
