When was the last time you checked in with yourself? It might seem like a strange question but many of us don’t take the time to focus on our mental health. Life can be hectic between working, taking care of family, balancing a budget, and maintaining social relationships. Many of us don’t deal with our issues as they come up, leading to more stress and a poorer state of mind.
But your mental state is the bedrock of everything else in your life. Life can be much more difficult if you’re struggling with anxiety or depression, or if you’re going through a tough transitional period. Professional counseling and therapy services can provide relief for these and many other kinds of mental health issues. Working with a therapist, counselor, psychologist, or psychiatrist can help you take the first step toward improving your mental state.
Do you think you could benefit from speaking to a licensed mental health professional? Call our office today at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Normal. One of our scheduling professionals can help you set up your first appointment.
Should I Speak With a Virtual Psychiatrist?
One big difference between psychiatrists and other mental health professionals is that psychiatrists are medical doctors. They learn about many different therapeutic techniques during their time in medical school and specialize in treating, diagnosing, and managing mental health issues.
As doctors, psychiatrists can also prescribe medication. Not everyone who decides to start therapy or counseling will benefit from a prescription but it’s a great option for some.
Our completely virtual psychiatric sessions meet with their clients remotely, either by phone or through video chats. Many of our clients love being able to meet with a mental health professional from the comfort of their own homes. If you want to talk to a psychiatrist, call our office today at Thriveworks Counseling in Normal, IL.
