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 Boynton Beach, FL 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 Boynton Beach 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?

Zayna is always busy, but usually, she doesn’t mind. As a teacher, she does her best to keep up with the rapid-fire pace of the school year. While she’s aware that she’s never been great at handling the stress that comes along with teaching high schoolers, she does love the rewarding nature of her job. But calming down after a hectic week in the classroom is a challenge; and after several years of what seems like a downward mental health spiral, Zayna is finally acknowledging that her racing thoughts need to be dealt with. 

As a first step toward better mental health, Zayna is looking to talk to a psychiatrist virtually, if she can. With their help, and with the flexibility granted by virtual sessions, she hopes to reduce her anxiety, which could help her remain focused at work and relaxed when she’s back at home. She knows that like other mental health professionals, a psychiatrist will listen to what she’s experiencing and address her needs and concerns. 

If you can relate to Zayna’s situation, you might also be faced with mental health conditions that are preventing you from making the most out of life. At Thriveworks in Boynton Beach, FL we have online psychiatry services that can help. Our psychiatrists are experienced, industry-leading professionals, and their assistance might make a big difference.

What Is a Psychiatrist? How Can They Help Me? 

Psychiatrists are medical doctors, who are often licensed therapists, as well. They’re able to diagnose and treat many types of mental health disorders and conditions with their skillset. The result is a unique and personalized treatment plan. Psychiatrists can also prescribe helpful medications to clients, which is something that sets them apart from other providers. These prescriptions assist people in managing their mental health conditions and their symptoms. While not everyone will need a prescription, it’s another unique way that psychiatry can benefit people. 

The psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Boynton Beach, FL are here to help you find relief from the mental health conditions you’re suffering from. In addition to being industry-leading experts, they’re also great listeners. In fact, our psychiatrists use the feedback you provide them to offer you treatment options and coping strategies designed to suit your specific needs. By listening to your experience, our psychiatric team can help you to create a treatment approach that fits your unique personality and lifestyle. 

Should I Consider Online Psychiatry? 

Because of their ability to prescribe helpful medications, our psychiatrists are often the best choice for disruptive mental health issues, like:  

  • ADHD 
  • PTSD 
  • Eating disorders
  • Alcoholism or drug abuse
  • OCD 
  • Depression 
  • Social anxiety 
  • And many other mental health conditions 

If you’re suffering from one of the conditions or disorders listed above, then talking with a psychiatrist might help to offer you newfound relief. And thanks to our psychiatry program you can ensure that you’re able to: 

  • Make it easier to talk to your psychiatrist. 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.
