Christopher Lautt, MSN, ARPN
Christopher joined My Psychiatric Partner in November, 2018. He believes the patient and the provider form a partnership in treatment, and that decisions in psychiatry are made together by both parties. His philosophy is that communication is central in psychiatric care, and also that patients should be on the fewest amount of medications at the lowest dosage possible that keeps them feeling stable and productive. Christopher enjoys working with a variety of patients ranging from adolescents to geriatric populations. He particularly enjoys working in the community mental health setting, where he hopes to make a difference in those who are underserved. Christopher has developed a passion and specialization in first break psychosis as a result of working closely with a team of psychologists at The Ohio State University on an extensive study.
Christopher has many years of experience as an Advanced Practice Nurse, and the following credentials and experience:
- Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science degree, with honors, from The Ohio State University
- Master of Science in Nursing degree, Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner specialization, with honors, from The Ohio State University
- Inpatient psychiatric clinical experience at Harding Hospital at The Ohio State University
- Clinical experience in the Community Mental Health Center setting, with special focus on chronic, seriously mentally ill (SMI) patients
