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 Dallas, GA 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 Dallas 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?

Harper’s job is making her feel overwhelmed. No matter how hard (or how long) she works, her boss isn’t happy. He continues to push her, putting unrealistic due dates on the calendar. He insists that it’s for her own good, that she’ll achieve more than she ever thought possible. 

Harper thinks there’s a tinge of truth to what her boss says, but it doesn’t help with her anxiety. She’s constantly on edge and she can’t manage to slow her racing thoughts. Every day, these thoughts run through her head:

  • I’m not good enough for this job. Everyone else here is better than me.
  • What if I don’t meet this deadline? I’m this close to getting fired. 
  • Should I ask for an extension? That will just make matters worse.
  • There’s nothing out there for me. If I lose this job, it’s over.

Every minute of the day, her mind is racing with thoughts about work. These thoughts even begin to seep into her dreams. Work is on her mind whether she’s awake or asleep. And it’s starting to exhaust her.

Harper knows that she needs to talk to someone about what’s happening to her, but she’s hesitant. After confiding in her best friend, she decides that it’s time and schedules an appointment with a psychiatrist.

Her psychiatrist assesses her symptoms and diagnoses Harper with an anxiety disorder. Harper isn’t surprised, but she is relieved by what happens next: Her psychiatrist sets her up with her first therapy appointment and prescribes an anti-anxiety medication.

Psychiatrists fill this need for mental health assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. They help people every single day understand what is causing their symptoms and how they can manage or reduce these symptoms. If you have a need for this kind of care, consider scheduling an appointment with an online psychiatrist at Thriveworks Counseling in Dallas, GA.

Our psychiatrists work with their clients over the phone and video for the majority of their appointments. This means greater convenience and comfort for your psychiatry appointments. Call our office to schedule your appointment today.

Who Should See a Psychiatrist?

Thriveworks Counseling has helped people live happy, successful lives since 2008. We remain dedicated to this mission and can offer valuable services that help you improve or maintain your mental health. 

If you are experiencing harmful symptoms of a mental health condition, you should talk to a medical professional, such as a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist can offer comprehensive care, from diagnosis to treatment. The following are commonly diagnosed and treated by psychiatrists:

  1. Depressive disorders: People who have depression are debilitated by a sadness that runs deep. These individuals lose interest in life, isolate themselves from others, and experience other symptoms like sleep disturbances.
  2. Anxiety disorders: People who have anxiety suffer from racing thoughts (as you can see in the example above with our character Harper). These individuals fail to tame these thoughts and suffer in important areas of life as a result.
  3. Eating disorders: Anorexia, bulimia, and other eating disorders are characterized by harmful behaviors like eating too little and vomiting after meals.

Psychiatrists can also help with bipolar disorder, substance abuse problems, addiction, and other mental health challenges.

The good news is that there is established treatment for these mental illnesses. Both therapy and medication prove to help people manage or reduce their harmful symptoms. When you talk to a psychiatrist about how you’ve been feeling and what you’ve been experiencing, they can offer a plan that is specific to you and your healing.
