Psychiatric Service – Therapists and Counselors in Chesterfield

What is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner?

A medical professional that deals with mental health issues is known as a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner. Although it is commonly believed that this type of professional deals with only the most serious issues and disorders, they are also helpful for more common problems, such as depression or anxiety disorders. Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners are also trained in various specialties, such as working with specific age groups. They are specially trained to deal with the unique and complex problems that they present.

How is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner different from a Therapist?

Unlike most mental health counselors and therapists, psychiatric nurse practitioners have the ability to prescribe medication, which is helpful in many situations. While talk therapy and other cognitive behavioral interventions are useful in many situations, some problems and disorders simply require medication. A Thriveworks psychiatric nurse practitioner can prescribe, monitor, and adjust medications as needed. This can be a very helpful piece of your treatment plan.
