Rapid City Psychiatry—Online Psychiatrists in Rapid City, SD
Have you ever heard of psychiatrists? Surely you have, but you might not know exactly what they do. These are medical doctors with specific skills, training, and experience in diagnosing and treating mental disorders. While they share a few functionalities with other mental health professionals, psychiatrists differ in that they can prescribe medication.
Medication proves to be an important part of treatment for many people and their mental disorders. In addition, psychotherapy is also an effective treatment measure and often part of one’s treatment plan. Psychiatrists can both prescribe medication and either conduct therapy themselves or set their clients up with a psychologist or therapist who can provide this service.

Can a Psychiatrist Help Me?
Psychiatrists can help many people and yes, that probably includes you. Consider Ellie’s situation:
Ellie doesn’t understand why she is feeling this way. She has no reason to feel depressed or upset in any way: She just got promoted at work, her relationship has never been stronger, and she’s closer with her family than ever before.
Still, Ellie experiences symptoms of depression. She feels hopeless about her life (despite all of the good things we just listed), she struggles to fall and stay asleep at night, she has no appetite, and she has zero drive to do her job.
Ellie talks to her boyfriend about how she’s been feeling. He says that he has noticed she’s been different lately and wants to help her get back to her happy self again. He encourages her to set up an appointment with a psychiatrist.
Psychiatrists can offer answers. For many people who have never dealt with mental illness before, the symptoms aren’t always obvious. And even when they are, we wonder, “Is this really depression? Am I actually depressed? Will it go away on our own?” We have so many questions and so little answers. But when we talk to a psychiatrist, they can validate what we are feeling and experiencing and give us the answers we’re looking for.
Psychiatrists are able to help people like Ellie who present symptoms of depression as well as those who present symptoms of another mental disorder or disturbance like:
- Bipolar disorder
- Narcissistic personality disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Social phobia
- Panic disorder
- Substance abuse
This is the shortlist. The truth is that there are over 200 mental health conditions out there. In fact, mental illness is a leading cause of disability worldwide. This means that you are not alone in your struggles. There are hundreds of millions of people out there fighting a battle with mental illness just like you.
