What Does a Psychiatrist Do?
Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in diagnosing, treating, and preventing mental illnesses. Treatment can look different for everyone, so you can expect your treatment plan to be customized to your situation. Psychiatrists often use talk therapy, medication, or a mixture of multiple treatment modalities to help their clients.
Talk therapy, also known as psychotherapy, involves talking to your provider about your mental health problems and symptoms. Throughout the course of treatment, you’ll learn about your condition and any moods, thoughts, feelings, or behaviors that it can bring up. You’ll learn how to cope with these feelings and respond to challenging situations in your life.
There are many different types of talk therapy with different approaches to tackling your specific problem. Psychiatrists learn a wide variety of research-backed therapeutic approaches in medical school and they can help you with the method that’s best for you.
Psychiatrists have medical degrees and can prescribe medications as part of a treatment plan. Not all treatment plans will include psychiatric medication, but they’re a great option for some people in certain situations.
Your psychiatrist will work with you to determine if a prescription is right for you. They’ll make sure you understand everything about the drug you’re taking including any side effects to look out for. Lastly, your psychiatrist will check in frequently to see if your medication is relieving your symptoms, making changes as needed.
Mental health treatment can put you on a path toward finding peace and serenity in your life. Consider reaching out to a psychiatrist from Thriveworks Counseling in Scottsdale, AZ if you’re looking for help.
