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 Greeley, CO 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 Greeley 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?

The brain is one of the largest and most complex organs in the human body. It helps you savor delicious meals, hug your loved ones, and enjoy your hobbies. But it’s not infallible.

Consider the following people:

  • Arthur feels nauseous every time he takes a college exam. His mind goes blank and his hands get clammy the moment a test is in front of him. Despite a strong love for learning, he’s started skipping classes.
  • Natalie doesn’t care about soccer anymore. She’s one of the best players in the state, but no longer feels excited when her team wins or she masters a new skill. She doesn’t want to quit but finds herself increasingly distracted during practice.

Arthur and Natalie’s situations may feel familiar. They’re likely dealing with symptoms of untreated mental health concerns that affect their energy level, mood, ability to form intimate relationships, and much more.

It’s normal to struggle with mental health issues like anxiety, depression, and feelings of isolation. While you may not be able to control whether or not you experience them, you can control the way you navigate these issues.

Seeking help from a psychiatrist is a sign of strength. After all, your mind deserves the same time, attention, and care as the rest of your body. Many people reach out to licensed mental health professionals for assistance managing mental illness, past trauma, and more.

When you’re ready, our board-certified psychiatrists at Thriveworks Counseling in Greeley, CO are here to help. Call us or click our online booking tool to find an appointment that’s right for you.

What Mental Health Concerns Do Psychiatrists Address?

Therapy can be useful for everyone, not only those experiencing severe symptoms. You don’t need to wait until your situation is unbearable to connect with a psychiatrist. Whether you have trouble sleeping, difficulty concentrating, or feel a sense of impending doom, a psychiatrist can identify and alleviate the underlying causes of your concerns.

Common mental illnesses treated by psychiatrists include:

  • Mood disorders: A mood disorder can cause your general state or mood to be distorted, interfering with your ability to function. Common mood disorders include major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, and seasonal affective disorder (SAD).
  • Personality disorders: A personality disorder can cause your thought and behavioral patterns to be rigid and unhealthy. This category includes paranoid personality disorder, borderline personality disorder (BPD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
  • Anxiety disorders: An anxiety disorder can lead to panic attacks, loss of focus, and stress levels that are inconsistent with the situation that caused them. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorders, and phobia-related anxiety are all types of anxiety disorders.
  • Substance abuse: Substance abuse is characterized by the excessive use of prescription medications, drugs, alcohol, or other substances that can lead to physical, emotional, or social harm.

It’s alright if the situation you’re facing doesn’t fit perfectly into one of these categories. You’re not required to show up to therapy with all the answers about your mental health. One of the benefits of working with a psychiatrist is being in a safe, judgment-free zone where you can ask as many questions as needed.

Psychiatric Treatment: How the Process Works

Psychiatrists are doctors who attend medical school and a psychiatry residency in order to diagnose, treat, and prevent mental health conditions. Equipped with a medical degree and the authority to prescribe medications and administer various forms of talk therapy, Thriveworks’ psychiatrists craft individualized treatment plans that help clients get back to feeling their best.

Therapy can look different for everyone but there are often some commonalities. A good provider will listen as you voice your concerns, needs, and goals. They’ll ask about your personal history, current living conditions, and relationships. Once they understand your situation better, they’ll determine if a mental disorder is affecting you and suggest strategies for handling your symptoms and treating their underlying causes. These treatment plans frequently use a combination of techniques, such as talk therapy, lifestyle adjustments, and prescription medication.

The psychiatrists at Thriveworks Counseling in Greeley, CO understand mental healthcare is of the utmost importance and are eager to help. Reach out today to get started.
