Lakewood Psychiatry—Lakewood, NJ Psychiatrists
Meredith Grey is a beloved character on long-time show Grey’s Anatomy. Often, the episodes begin or end with Grey’s wise words. In one episode, Grey gives a powerful speech about letting your voice be heard. “Don’t let the fear keep you quiet,” she says. “You have a voice so use it. Speak up. Raise your hands. Shout your answers. Make yourself heard. Whatever it takes, just find your voice, and when you do, fill the silence.”
This wisdom can help us in many stages of life. Especially when we feel silenced or afraid to speak up. Often, we feel silenced or afraid to speak up when we feel submerged in difficulties. When we’re overwhelmed with difficult emotions like sadness, anger, or anxiety. When we experience a traumatic event or lose one of our dearest loved ones. When we develop symptoms of a serious mental health condition.
In these instances, it’s more important than ever to find our voices and fill the silence—to ask for help. Talking to a friend or a family member is a good start. But often, our problems necessitate talking to a mental health professional too, like a psychiatrist.
If you are struggling due to overwhelming emotions, trauma, the death of a loved one, or the development of a mental illness, reach out to Thriveworks Counseling in Lakewood, NJ. We have a team of psychiatrists who help people just like you every single day. They can offer treatment online in video and telephone sessions.
What Are Psychiatrists? How Can They Help Me?
Psychiatrists are mental health professionals who can provide you with comprehensive mental health care. These particular professionals have extensive medical training in helping people with mental health disorders and emotional disturbances. Their main duties are to assess, diagnose, treat, and prevent mental disorders.
Over 200 mental disorders exist in the world, but there are conditions that are more widespread. Psychiatrists commonly help people with the following:
- Bipolar disorder
- Major depressive disorder
- Generalized anxiety disorder
- Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Substance abuse disorder
In addition to helping people with the above disorders, psychiatrists can help people with other emotional disturbances that don’t have a clear cause, like hallucinations, racing thoughts, and sleep disturbances.
Most often, the psychiatric care given by a psychiatrist involves medication and/or psychotherapy. The former helps to improve the individual’s symptoms, while the latter helps the individual better understand causes or influences of one’s condition. The two together can prove to be an effective treatment plan, which helps the individual live better.
Psychiatrists work at many different medical centers. These include hospitals, rehabs, nursing homes, and also private practices like Thriveworks. We have seen just how instrumental psychiatrists can prove in the healing of our clients and we are happy to have them on our team.
