Do you remember in grade school when you learned about the makings of a story, including the characters, the setting, the plot?
If you can tap into that knowledge, you might remember that the plot is composed of 5 importance pieces: the exposition (or start of the story), the rising action (or the intro to the conflict), the climax (the turning point of the story), the falling action (or the aftermath of the climax), and the resolution (or the conclusion of the story).
The resolution of the story is often a happy ending. The main character has quickly solved their problem and is set up for all of the happiness and success in the world. In real life though, this isn’t exactly true. In the real world, we all face challenges that aren’t easily or quickly resolved. In fact, some of the biggest challenges that we face are long-term battles.
It’s important to remember that stories are only that. Real life has real problems that often take a longer or larger plan for managing or overcoming. For example, if a loved one passes away, you’ll need to navigate a few different steps to heal properly, like:
- Allowing yourself to grieve
- Turning to loved ones for support
- Being extra kind to yourself and practicing self-care
- Coming to terms with your loss
- Moving forward without the loved one lost
Navigating these steps isn’t so cut and dry. Often, we struggle to take these steps on our own and require help. Fortunately, mental health professionals are happy to step in and offer this help. Psychiatrists, specifically, have the tools, the training, and the experience to help people navigate many different mental disturbances.
Psychiatrists can help people heal after a loved one has passed, come to terms with a breakup or separation, and manage harmful symptoms of a mental health condition like depression. If you’d like a psychiatrist’s assistance, consider scheduling an appointment at Thriveworks Counseling in Jersey City, NJ. The online psychiatrists on our team are readily available to help you now, over the phone or video.
Who Can Psychiatrists Help?
Psychiatry is an area of medicine that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of mental disorders and disturbances. This means that psychiatrists are mental health professionals who work to prevent, diagnose, and treat mental disorders and disturbances in their clients.
A lot of people assume that psychiatrists only help people with severe disorders like bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. And while they can help these individuals, they can also help people with other disorders and problems that aren’t as severe. Here is a list of some of the most common problems seen by a psychiatrist:
- Depressive disorders
- Anorexia and other eating disorders
- Insomnia, hypersomnia, and other sleep problems
- Substance abuse and other drug addictions
- Overwhelming stress or worry
- Anxiety disorders
- Obsessive thoughts/behaviors
Are you experiencing any of these disturbances? If so, you are likely struggling to function normally. And it’s important that you talk to a professional so that you can gain the proper assistance.
Psychiatrists help their clients by evaluating and understanding their symptoms, making a diagnosis, and then designing a treatment plan. This treatment plan might consist of medication, therapy, or both. The mission is to come up with a personalized approach that will best suit the individual’s needs.
