They live in gorgeous beach homes, drive exotic cars, bask in the adoration of fans, and live lives that seem so enviable. Celebrities, athletes, and others who have achieved great success have it all, right? On the outside, perhaps. But their fame and glory don’t shield them from struggling with mental illness.

Millions of Americans live with a mental illness, including celebrities such as Oprah, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Chris Evans, and Lady Gaga. They have all spoken publicly about their mental health struggles. Perhaps more importantly, they have also discussed the benefits of getting treatment to help encourage others to do the same.

Psychiatric services have proven helpful for countless people dealing with anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. If you’re experiencing symptoms of a mental health issue or think you might be struggling with a mental illness, consider making an appointment with one of our licensed psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Kalamazoo, MI.

When To Consult With a Psychiatrist

Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in the study, prevention, and treatment of mental disorders. They undergo a rigorous education and training program, which includes medical school and a written exam to be licensed.

Psychiatrists then complete four years of a psychiatry residency, during which they see a variety of clients in hospital or clinical settings. During this residency, psychiatrists treat clients with a wide range of mental disorders, including bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety. With this training, psychiatrists learn to diagnose and treat a variety of mental health issues, ranging from mild to severe.

Your symptoms might vary, but here are some that might prompt an appointment with a psychiatrist:

  • Persistent sense of doom
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Thoughts of self-harm
  • Changes in eating habits
  • Panic attacks
  • Changes in personality
  • Substance abuse
  • Mood swings
  • Frequent outbursts of anger
  • Addictive behaviors

If you find yourself experiencing symptoms that are interfering with your ability to live your life to the fullest, the licensed psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Kalamazoo, MI are here to help. Call today if you’re ready to speak with a mental health professional.

What Does Psychiatric Treatment Involve?

As medical doctors, psychiatrists are uniquely trained to treat mental illnesses. Just as important, they are trained to help people to recognize early symptoms and prevent them from getting worse.

Psychiatrists perform a range of medical exams, lab tests, and psychological evaluations to complete a diagnosis. With this information, psychiatrists are able to differentiate mental disorders from other medical conditions that might present with similar symptoms.

Once a diagnosis is made, a psychiatrist’s next job is to customize a treatment plan, developing the right playbook for each client. They might use cognitive behavioral therapy to address dysfunctional thought patterns. They might incorporate medication to address underlying issues as is often done for those with high cholesterol or high blood pressure.

If medication is right for your situation, your psychiatrist is licensed to prescribe it directly and monitor for any potential side effects. If ongoing talk therapy sessions are deemed helpful, your psychiatrist might collaborate with other Thriveworks staff members to deliver that form of treatment.

Your symptoms don’t have to define you any longer. At Thriveworks in Kalamazoo, MI, we look forward to helping you move beyond your mental health issues so you can live a fuller, happier life.
