Starting Psychiatry/medication

Does Thriveworks offer psychiatric services?

Yes, we offer comprehensive psychiatric services to meet your mental health needs.

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 Cincinnati, OH specifically offer online psychiatry to their clients.

What is the difference between a mental health therapist & psychiatrist?

A therapist has an education specifically rooted in therapeutic practice, approaches, techniques, and treatment. They cannot prescribe medications for clients, though 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 is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner (NP)?

A Psychiatry Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a highly trained and licensed professional who specializes in mental health care. They are qualified to diagnose and treat mental health conditions, prescribe medications, and provide therapy. Psychiatric NPs at Thriveworks are qualified to prescribe medications for a variety of mental health conditions. They work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.

How do psychiatric 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.

Can I receive psychiatric services online?

Yes. At Thriveworks, we offer online-only psychiatry services for optimal comfort and convenience.

How long does psychiatry last?

Psychiatric services at Thriveworks Cincinnati 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 a year. Treatment length is heavily dependent on the condition(s) being treated, the course of treatment, and the client’s goals for treatment.

Is anxiety treated with psychiatry?

Psychiatrists are mental health professionals who can prescribe anxiety medication and provide therapeutic treatment for anxiety, although not all psychiatrists offer therapy. At Thriveworks, medication management is via online psychiatry sessions.

Does Thriveworks accept insurance for psychiatric services?

Yes, Thriveworks accepts most major insurance plans. We strive to make mental health care accessible and affordable for everyone.

Is It Time for Me to Meet with a Psychiatrist?

If you are suffering mentally or emotionally and the problem can be managed on your own, you should talk to a mental health professional. Psychiatrists, specifically, are equipped to help people understand and manage their mental health challenges, such as:

  • The loss of a friend, family member, or relationship
  • Symptoms of a mental illness, like depression
  • Traumatic events, like abuse or a car accident
  • Relationship problems, like lack of trust or jealousy
  • Issues with violence or aggression, towards oneself or others
  • Family conflicts or disagreements

These challenges can hinder every important area of life. For example, the death of a family member can make focusing at work difficult and also cause one to neglect their relationships with others. Fortunately, though, when we properly address these challenges, we can heal, manage, and work towards a happier, healthier life.

Psychiatric Treatment: Therapy and Medication 

Psychiatrists fulfill a few main needs: They can diagnose mental disturbances, provide treatment for them, and also help to prevent them (from developing or worsening). They assess each client’s specific needs, from their presentation of symptoms to any goals they have for themselves during their time in treatment.

In treating mental health conditions, psychiatric providers often recommend therapy, the use of medication, or both. In fact, the two together proves to be a powerful combination that helps people heal and improve their symptoms. 

If you are struggling to address or manage any of the challenges we’ve discussed, we recommend that you reach out for help. We know that it can feel scary, but we also know that it can change your life.
