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 Roseville, CA 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 Roseville 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?

Do you ever feel like new or worsening feelings of sadness, fear, or obsession are keeping you from living your best life? Maybe you’re having a hard time focusing or performing daily tasks because your emotions just don’t make sense. Your thoughts are racing, and so is your heart.

Mental health issues can often have both psychological and physical symptoms, and this combination can be especially difficult to manage on your own. If troublesome thoughts or feelings are interfering with your daily life, you may consider speaking with a licensed psychiatrist.

Psychiatrists specialize in helping you make sense out of your symptoms. They can determine the underlying cause of mental illness, and devise a thorough treatment plan to tackle it. Whether your issues are acute or ongoing, a psychiatrist can help you regain control of your thoughts and emotions.

Working with a psychiatrist at Thriveworks in Roseville, CA can help you target the cause behind your mental health issues and give you the power to overcome them and return to a life you love.

Could a Psychiatrist Help Me Feel Better?

When you’re suffering from a mental health disorder, it can affect you mentally, emotionally, and physically. Depression, for example, can sometimes manifest as widespread pain, which makes basic tasks (like getting out of bed) daunting and overwhelming.

A psychiatrist has the credentials and training to treat mental health symptoms, helping you feel better both mentally and physically. Psychiatry services are not solely reserved for people with severe illness. Psychiatrists specialize in helping people overcome common issues like anxiety or mood disorders, including those that require the addition of medication for proper treatment.

Some of the most common reasons people seek help from psychiatrists include:

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • ADHD or ADD
  • Seasonal affective disorder
  • Depression or other mood disorders
  • Panic disorder or other anxiety disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Postpartum depression
  • Learning disabilities
  • Eating disorders

A psychiatrist can help you feel better in many ways. Whether your mental health is causing you to struggle mentally, emotionally, or physically, a licensed psychiatrist at Thriveworks in Roseville, CA can create a plan for relief. Your path to feeling better should be unique and tailored to your needs, and our psychiatrists have the right tools to help.

What Does Psychiatric Treatment Entail?

Sometimes it’s hard to identify the cause of your symptoms, which can make them difficult to treat. Mental health issues can stem from your emotional state, past experiences, or challenges you’ve faced. Other times, psychiatric disorders can be caused by biological or psychological factors.

As a trained medical doctor, a psychiatrist has special skills that can pinpoint your specific issues and offer a diagnosis to help you make a significant change for the better. Once your psychiatrist has reached a diagnosis, they can build a treatment plan that is designed to specifically treat the underlying cause of your symptoms and alleviate the symptoms themselves. Because a psychiatrist is a licensed physician, they can also prescribe medication as needed for treatment.

The treatment plan a psychiatrist recommends may have many components, all unique to your situation. Some can help you reduce symptoms in the short term while others may serve as preventative measures to avoid relapse or worsening of your condition. Your personalized plan may include different types of therapy, lifestyle adjustments, or the addition of medication.

Psychiatrists specialize in diagnosing and treating the most complicated psychological problems but they also provide effective treatment for mild or seasonal mental disorders. There is no right or wrong time to seek psychiatric treatment — psychiatrists can help anyone who is seeking to improve their mental health.
