Starting Psychiatry/medication

What is psychiatry?

Psychiatry is a branch of medicine that focuses specifically on the medical and psychotherapeutic treatment of mental conditions and disorders.

How does psychiatry work?

Psychiatry allows people struggling to manage mental conditions or disorders to get access to medications that will make daily functioning easier, as well as work through any mental factors that might be causing or worsening their condition. Though medications can't cure mental disorders, medication can make symptoms more manageable, making the process of psychotherapeutic treatment easier and more effective. Psychiatric care can be available through in-person psychiatry and online psychiatry, depending on where you live and your own preferences. However, psychiatric providers at Thriveworks in Conway, AR specifically offer online psychiatry to their clients.

Does psychiatry deal with anxiety?

Psychiatrists are among the mental health professionals who can prescribe anxiety medication, and they are also capable of offering therapeutic treatment for anxiety as well, though not every psychiatric professional offers therapy. Medication management can be offered via in-person or online psychiatry.

What is the difference between a mental health therapist and psychiatrist?

A therapist has an education specifically rooted in therapeutic practice, approaches, techniques, and treatment. They cannot prescribe medications for clients, thought they often refer clients to psychiatrists for medication management. Psychiatrists are medically trained doctors who specialize in mental health treatment, mainly through medication management and prescription, though they can also practice therapy.

What's the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist?

Psychologists and psychiatrists receive differing educations, as psychologists are not medically trained the same way that psychiatrists are. Psychologists mainly specialize in providing therapy services and diagnoses for mental disorders — something that most therapists cannot provide — while psychiatrists manage medications and sometimes provide therapy services. The main difference is that psychologists (generally) cannot prescribe medications the way psychiatrists can.

Do psychiatric NPs treat mental disorders?

Psychiatric nurse practitioners (NPs) treat and diagnose disorders, prescribe and manage medications, and offer psychotherapy services, too.

How do psychiatriac providers diagnose?

Oftentimes, psychiatrists or psychiatric professionals will perform a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, which involves an in-depth discussion about your symptoms, medical history, and current medications. Once they reach a diagnosis, they may suggest starting certain medications depending on your condition and the intensity of your symptoms.

Is psychiatry/medication conducted in person or online?

At Thriveworks, we offer online psychiatry as well as in-person therapy services for optimal comfort and convenience.

How long does psychiatry last?

Psychiatric services at Thriveworks Conway can last for as little or as much time as the client needs to reach their treatment goals, whether that be a month or two or over the course of years. treatment length is heavily dependent on the condition(s) being treated, the course of treatment, and the client's goals for treatment.

Need more help deciding?

When it comes to treating difficult mental health conditions, like stubborn forms of anxiety, depression, anger, and other issues, psychiatry and medication management techniques are effective solutions for helping clients manage their symptoms. Perhaps you’re even looking to talk to a psychiatrist—but maybe aren’t sure where to begin. Or if they can help you. 

Thriveworks Conway, AR can assist with many types of mental health conditions, even if you aren’t sure what’s wrong. You can work together with a psychiatric nurse practitioner (NP) who will craft an individualized psychiatric treatment plan that addresses your needs and concerns step by step. 

What Is Psychiatry?  

Psychiatry treats the symptoms of mental health conditions. Unlike other mental health professionals, our psychiatric nurse practitioners can utilize medications (known as medication management) to treat mental health conditions. Psychiatric providers are sometimes licensed therapists, as well. 

With their strong medical background, these providers can assist clients in unique ways. Psychiatric professionals can: 

  • Diagnose and treat persistent or severe mental health disorders and conditions 
  • Prescribe helpful medication to alleviate a client’s symptoms
  • Use a combinative approach with both therapy and prescriptions 

Psychiatrists and NPs are also able to collaborate with therapists, social workers, and counselors to offer medication management services together with therapy. And for some conditions, especially complex ones like anxiety, treatment with medication and psychotherapy is far more effective than either treatment on its own.

But in general, only psychiatrists and psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners (PMHNPs) can prescribe medications, while psychologists, counselors, and therapists can not.

My depression and anxiety were taken over my life and I knew I had to make a change. Just like everyone else I thought I didn't need counseling. After my first session with Kristen G., I knew God had placed me with a compassionate, and caring therapist. Without a doubt I would recommend Thriveworks and their team of professionals
