Mental Health Q&A

When should I consider seeking mental health care?

Mental health care can be incredibly helpful if you're going through a difficult period, struggling with the effects of the past, or want to improve your health overall. Some of the specific issues that mental health care can help with include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Insomnia
  • Stress

Your mental, physical, and spiritual health are so closely intertwined that they’re best approached together through holistic health care. 

What is holistic mental health care?

Holistic mental health care focuses on the mind, body, and spirit. A commitment to holistic mental health care is what sets Integrated Express Healthcare Solutions apart. 

Instead of simply focusing on the current problem and treating that, holistic mental health care approaches healing from every angle. You as a person not just your current problem are what matters when it comes to holistic mental health care. 

How does holistic mental health care work?

Holistic mental health care emphasizes a highly individualized approach that recognizes the many factors that make you unique.

Dr. Passarelli is a highly trained medical care provider who strongly believes in the power of personalized holistic mental health care, including:

Pharmacogenetic testing and medication

Pharmacogenetic testing essentially assesses your genes and determines how they might influence your response to mental health medications. Many people who experience depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other mental health challenges take medications like antidepressants to help manage their condition. 

But antidepressants affect every person differently. What works well for one person may have no effects (or even negative effects) on another. And, to complicate matters, it can take weeks for mental health medications to take effect. So, many people try at least two or three medications before they find relief and in the meantime, they’re suffering. 

Neurological and Psychiatric genetic  testing accurately predicts your body’s response to different medications, so you don’t have to play guessing and waiting games. From the start, Dr. Passarelli can prescribe the right medication, at the optimal dose. 


The practice offers referrals for diverse therapeutic methods that can help you find avenues of self-expression, growth, and healing that work for you. From traditional talk therapy to art therapy, mindfulness, equine therapy, and many other options, your treatment is personalized for you.
