Silver Lining Integrative Psychiatry Focuses on Whole-Person Mental Health

Sponsored by: Silver Lining Integrative Psychiatry

Everyone deserves to find happiness and equilibrium in life, and if you’re struggling with that, Silver Lining Integrative Psychiatry can help.  

Silver Lining Integrative Psychiatry took its first patient in April 2021, and although the business is a relatively new endeavor for its two principal mental health professionals, providing quality care certainly is not. Thyra Crissey and Veronica Sherwood are both board certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioners (PMHNP) with decades of experience working in the mental health field. Crissey is also a veteran of the South Dakota Air National Guard and has worked with fellow veterans.  

The two women share a philosophy when it comes to patient care, prompting them to partner up and branch out to open their own practice, and enabling them to exercise what they are passionate about—patient-centered care.  

“We truly care for our patients, and we can make a significant difference by listening, rather than taking a textbook approach,” explained Sherwood. “We have been able to dramatically change people’s lives for the better.” 

Another advantage of Silver Lining Integrative Psychiatry is that they can see new patients quickly, usually within two weeks, and accept most insurances.  

Silver Lining Integrative Psychiatry diagnoses and manages medication for many common mental health issues including depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, ADHD, child/adolescent behavioral issues, PTSD, OCD and bipolar. Their services are primarily held via telehealth, which allows them to reach a broad geographical area in South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa and Nebraska. They also have physical offices in Sioux Falls and Yankton if in-person appointments are required.  

“We get to know our patients and give them coping mechanisms for what they’re going through,” Crissey said. “I love being able to see the enjoyment and excitement from patients and family members on the difference we can make in being able to provide mental health care for them.”
