Mr. Michael Trueworthy

Psychiatric Nurse , CNP

(207) 747-3230
I am a psychiatric NP, evaluating, diagnosing, and treating mental disorders. I am a nationally certified & licensed Maine prescriber. When problems at home, school, or work cannot be fully resolved with psychotherapy, then medication may help move you closer to full resolution of your symptoms. The majority of my patients have suffered from anxiety, depressive, mood stability, and attention problems. Usually, in a few months, most patients have returned to stability or had their symptoms resolve. Call for an initial screening. Also, I would consider treatment for persistent Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder symptoms by issuing a Maine Medical Marijuana Certificate.
I became a RN in 1976, started working in psychiatric hospitals in 1979, earned a Masters in Nursing in 1999, & certification as an adult psychiatric nurse practitioner in 2001. After supervision for 2 years, and several years of practice at public clinics, I started an independent, solo practice in 2008.
Medication management is not necessarily a simple or quick cure for an ailment. Medications are generally beneficial, but have risks. I have evaluated patients who I determined to have a medical issue causing their psychiatric problem, then referred them to the appropriate medical specialist, who affected the proper cure.
