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 Attleboro, MA 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 Attleboro 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?

Jessica struggles with depression and anxiety. To her friends and family, it seems as if nothing is “wrong” with her and that she’s a happy woman. While that is true in some cases, Jessica often puts on a happy face when she’s struggling with her emotions. Some tasks are harder for her to do, like flying for business trips or putting on clean clothes when she’s having a rough morning. Although her anxiety and depression aren’t considered severe, she could still benefit from more than just counseling. Whether you’re like Jessica or struggle a little bit more with your mental health, a psychiatrist or nurse practitioner can help.

Don’t settle. Don’t finish crappy books. If you don’t like the menu, leave the restaurant. If you’re not on the right path, get off it.” – Chris Brogan

If you’re struggling with a mental illness, you might benefit from seeking psychiatric care. At Thriveworks Counseling in Attleboro, MA, we have online psychiatrists and nurse practitioners who have the training, education, and expertise in diagnosing and treating mental health conditions. They can help their clients take medication safely and effectively. If you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition, consider reaching out today by calling (508) 205-0195.

Can a Psychiatrist Help Me?

Psychiatrists can help clients with a range of concerns and needs. It doesn’t matter if you are experiencing extreme signs and symptoms of a mental illness or mild, most anyone can find benefits in working with an online psychiatrist. It doesn’t matter if you are struggling to cope with the loss of a loved one, have low self-esteem, battle depression or anxiety, have relationship problems, or feel like you’re lacking in a specific area of your life.

If you have been diagnosed with a mental health disorder, it’s important that you seek treatment. On the other hand, if you have been experiencing symptoms of a mental health disorder, you should seek out a diagnosis from a trusted mental health provider. Regardless, a nurse practitioner or psychiatrist at Thriveworks in Attleboro can help.

What Is Medication Management?

Ask yourself these questions: “Do I know how much medication I should be taking?” “Are my current medications going to be negatively affected by a new medication?” These are important things to consider before starting anything new. Luckily, a psychiatrist can answer those questions in addition to providing you all of the information you need. Starting a new medication is a big deal and we’re here to help ease the process. If you do end up meeting with a nurse practitioner or psychiatrist about getting a prescription medication, be sure to:

  1. Disclose any and all medications you are currently on
  2. Discuss any allergies or issues you have had with past medications
  3. Understand how much of the medication you should be taking, at what time of the day, and with or without food
  4. Continue to take your medication exactly as prescribed
  5. Speak with your provider if you have any questions or concerns about the medication you are on

Here at Thriveworks Counseling in Attleboro, we are client-focused and understand the importance of a partnership in your mental health journey. No matter the question, concern, or topic you’d like to discuss, we’re here and ready to help.
