Bristol Psychiatry – Mental Health Services
The idea of pursuing counseling or therapy is overwhelming and scary for many. It is difficult to know where to turn, who to trust, or what to do first to get help. In pursuing help for a mental health disorder or issue, it can be comforting to seek the highest level of care. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor that is highly trained in the area of mental health. They have graduated medical school and have also received specialized training in their area of expertise.
There is a misconception that psychiatrists deal only with the serious mental health issues, and perhaps only in in-patient facilities. However, this is a normal misconception. Psychiatrists assist with many different types of disorders, from extreme life debilitating disorders to the more common mental health problems.
Reasons to pursue counseling with a psychiatrist may include:
- Anxiety issues
- Eating disorders
- Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
- Child therapy, with possible developmental disorders
- Addiction issues
This is by no means an exhaustive list of everything that Thriveworks Bristol psychiatrists can treat. Perhaps you are simply not feeling well, and cannot pinpoint what the problem is or where it would fit in this list. A psychiatrist can help diagnose, plan for recovery, and walk on the process of healing with you.
A benefit to engaging in counseling with a psychiatrist is that this type of provider has the ability to prescribe medication. In some cases, this can be extremely helpful and aid in a patient’s recovery. A psychiatrist, as a medical doctor, is uniquely able to prescribe and oversee prescription medication treatment for their patients.
