My name is Yolanda Baugh and I’ve worked in the Medicine occupational sector for more than 39 years. I have extensive management experience (22 years) with exposure to executive/middle management positions.
I am a board certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP-BC), with a Masters in Nursing Practice. I am passionate about providing high quality, compassionate, and comprehensive mental health services to children, adolescents, and adults. I possesses strong clinical skills enhanced by natural ability to build rapport with patients and their families. I follow evidence-based guidelines blended with clinical experience, personal observation, and intuition. As a PMHNP, my role is multifaceted, including educator, mental health advocate, therapist, and scientist.
I value interdisciplinary education and inter-professional collaboration for a whole person, patient-centered approach. I always advocate for innovations in healthcare, and have special interests in the integration of behavioral medicine, trauma-informed care, suicide prevention, and relationship health.
