Who Should Seek Out Psychiatric Care?
Just as there are many reasons to seek out care from your general physician, there are many reasons to seek out care from a psychiatrist. By the way, in both cases, there is no reason to feel ashamed. You wouldn’t feel ashamed to go to the doctor when you’re having symptoms of the flu, would you?
Seeking out mental health help is a strong decision and the first step in living the life that you deserve. We have seen just how beneficial mental health care can prove to one’s life, and we want to help you experience the same benefits.

- Signs of addiction or substance abuse problems

- Difficulty focusing at work or school for an extended period
- Your current psychiatric treatment isn’t working out
- You’d like to talk to someone about starting or changing medication

What Treatments Can a Psychiatrist Provide?
Psychiatrists are qualified and trained to provide their clients different forms of treatment. Two of the most common and most effective treatments are psychotherapy and medication.
When psychiatrists meet with a new client, they get to know their symptoms, needs, goals, and medical histories. All of this information allows them to then prescribe the right form of treatment. Often, therapy, medication, or a combination of both is what the doctor orders.
Psychiatrists are qualified to offer psychotherapy but they might also set you up with another therapist for your sessions. However, they can and will prescribe your medication and also provide you with medication management for as long as you take your medication.
Medication management involves understanding and following through with your psychiatrist’s instructions for taking your medication. It’s important to follow the exact dosage as well as understand potential side effects. And if you do experience negative side effects that outweigh the benefits of your medication, you must tell your psychiatrist so they can alter your prescription or help you find a new one entirely.
