Starting Psychiatry/medication

Does Thriveworks offer psychiatric services?

Yes, we offer comprehensive psychiatric services to meet your mental health needs.

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 Jonesboro, AR specifically offer online psychiatry to their clients.

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

A therapist has an education specifically rooted in therapeutic practice, approaches, techniques, and treatment. They cannot prescribe medications for clients, though 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 is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner (NP)?

A Psychiatry Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a highly trained and licensed professional who specializes in mental health care. They are qualified to diagnose and treat mental health conditions, prescribe medications, and provide therapy. Psychiatric NPs at Thriveworks are qualified to prescribe medications for a variety of mental health conditions. They work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.

How do psychiatric 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.

Can I receive psychiatric services online?

Yes. At Thriveworks, we offer online-only psychiatry services for optimal comfort and convenience.

How long does psychiatry last?

Psychiatric services at Thriveworks Jonesboro 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 a year. Treatment length is heavily dependent on the condition(s) being treated, the course of treatment, and the client’s goals for treatment.

Is anxiety treated with psychiatry?

Psychiatrists are mental health professionals who can prescribe anxiety medication and provide therapeutic treatment for anxiety, although not all psychiatrists offer therapy. At Thriveworks, medication management is via online psychiatry sessions.

Does Thriveworks accept insurance for psychiatric services?

Yes, Thriveworks accepts most major insurance plans. We strive to make mental health care accessible and affordable for everyone.

What Is a Psychiatrist? How Can They Help? 

Psychiatrists are often the preferred provider type for those dealing with disruptive or severe mental health conditions, such as: 

  • OCD 
  • Depression 
  • Social anxiety 
  • ADHD 
  • PTSD 
  • Eating disorders
  • And many other mental health conditions 

Not everyone will need prescription medication from a psychiatrist. And if you’re worried that a condition or situation that you’re dealing with isn’t listed above, know that you can share what you’re experiencing with someone on our psychiatric team at Thriveworks in Jonesboro, AR. Our psychiatric nurse practitioners are not only industry experts, but talented listeners. 

Should I Consider Online Psychiatry? 

With Thriveworks, our psychiatric services are completely virtual, which means more convenience and flexibility for you as our client. It’s hard enough finding time to commute to a counseling office while you’re working, balancing your family life, and trying to stay on top of other commitments.

Schedule and attend virtually, and you’ll be able to connect from home, the office, or really anywhere, as long as you have reliable internet and the ability to talk privately. Online psychiatry can also help you to: 

  • Prioritize your mental health. Take care of your emotional wellbeing, even if you have a busy work or travel schedule. Parents or those taking care of elder relatives can have the opportunity to take care of themselves, too.
  • Eliminate the need to commute to a brick-and-mortar location. If you have reliable internet and a private space to talk with your psychiatric nurse practitioner, you’re set. Attend your session from home, the office—wherever.
  • Reduce the anxiety you might feel about seeking mental health services. When you’re able to talk from the location of your choice, it can be easier to discuss concepts or situations related to your mental health needs.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
