Holy Family Memorial welcomes psychiatric nurse practitioner Brenda Stallbaum, APNP. She is a board-certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner with over 30 years of behavioral health experience. As a nurse practitioner, Stallbaum can assess, diagnose, treat and prescribe medications to adults with mental health disorders.
“Mental health is a component of health that is not well understood,” says Stallbaum. “I became a psychiatric nurse practitioner because I wanted to be an advocate for individuals suffering with mental health issues.”
Stallbaum received her nursing degree from the University of Evansville and completed her master of science in adult psychiatric and mental health nursing from Indiana University in Indianapolis, Indiana. Her special interests include mood disorders, psychotic disorders, and helping family members of patients with a mental health condition.
In her free time, Stallbaum enjoys playing the piano for her church and spending time with silver labrador retriever, Dolly.
