FAQs and Answers

Psychiatry is a branch of medicine focused on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. Psychiatrists are medical doctors who can prescribe medications, perform medical tests, and provide psychotherapy.

While both fields focus on mental health, psychiatrists are medical doctors who can prescribe medication and perform medical procedures. Psychologists typically hold doctoral degrees in psychology and provide therapy and counseling but cannot prescribe medications in most jurisdictions.

Psychiatrists treat a wide range of conditions, including depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, substance abuse disorders, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), among others.

Seeking psychiatric help is advisable when experiencing persistent symptoms affecting one's quality of life, such as prolonged sadness, extreme anxiety, significant mood swings, thoughts of self-harm, or difficulties functioning daily.

The first visit typically involves a comprehensive evaluation, where the psychiatrist will ask about your symptoms, health history, family history of mental health issues, and any medications or treatments you've previously tried.

Treatments may include medication, psychotherapy (such as cognitive-behavioral therapy), lifestyle changes, and in some cases, more advanced treatments like electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) for severe conditions.

Yes, it's common to combine treatments, such as medication with psychotherapy, to address different aspects of a condition. The combination often depends on the individual's needs and the specific disorder being treated.

The duration of treatment varies widely among individuals and conditions. Some may require short-term treatment, while others might need long-term management strategies for chronic conditions.

Not always. The need for medication depends on the specific condition, its severity, and the individual's response to other forms of treatment. Decisions about medication are made collaboratively between the patient and psychiatrist.

Patient confidentiality is a cornerstone of psychiatric treatment. Information shared with a psychiatrist is protected by law and ethical standards, except in situations where there is an imminent threat to the patient or others.

The primary goal is to relieve symptoms, improve quality of life, help individuals function better in their daily lives, and provide strategies for managing mental health conditions.

You can seek referrals from your primary care physician, insurance company, local mental health organizations, or trusted online directories. It's important to choose a provider with whom you feel comfortable and who has experience treating your specific condition.
