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 Wilmington, DE 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 Wilmington 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.

Need more help deciding?

Millions of Americans suffer from mental, emotional, and behavioral health issues every year. But with diagnosis and treatment from a psychiatrist, those suffering can reduce their symptoms and go on to lead healthier, happier lives.

At Thriveworks, we offer psychiatric services to guide you through the symptoms of anxiety, depression, or other mental and emotional disorders that you might be facing. We provide online counseling and can prescribe medications, if necessary, to build the most effective treatment plan for your needs. If you are embarking on that first step in taking control of your mental health, consider making a psychiatry appointment at Thriveworks in Wilmington, DE.

Would I Benefit from Seeing a Psychiatrist?

Symptoms of mental health disorders will look different and range in severity, depending on the person’s situation. These are just some of the symptoms and situations that might prompt you to consult with a psychiatrist:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Substance abuse
  • Thoughts of self-harm
  • Mood swings
  • Frequent outbursts of anger
  • Personality changes
  • Eating disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Sleeplessness

Your symptoms might vary but if you are facing emotions and behaviors that are interfering with your life, don’t hesitate to call Thriveworks in Wilmington, DE, to discuss them with a psychiatric nurse practitioner.

What Can I Expect from Psychiatric Treatment?

In making a diagnosis, a psychiatrist can determine whether your symptoms have mental or physical causes or a combination of the two. That’s a critical step in providing the right form of treatment.

Psychiatrists and other psychiatric providers are also licensed to prescribe medications to treat many forms of mental health disorders. They can use medications in conjunction with cognitive behavioral therapy or other forms of talk therapy to tailor a treatment program specifically for you.

Since no client or approach is exactly alike, your Thriveworks psychiatric nurse practitioner will guide you through a diagnosis and treatment program to determine your best path. To learn more, call Thriveworks in Wilmington, DE for an appointment.

Shannon Clay is an absolute GEM! I've never know a "professional" who exuded an empathy and compassion for what they do as a profession, as Shannon does! She personifies an uncanny willingness to provide resources and a listening ear. She's never judgemental and gives the best advice! I am a better person for having met her. I pray she goes far in this business, especially in the climate we are living in nowadays!
