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 Amarillo, TX 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 Amarillo 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.

Need more help deciding?

People are sometimes hesitant to seek mental and emotional help when they need it because of the stigma surrounding mental health. They worry about what friends and family may think or don’t believe they have a problem worth bringing up. But mental and emotional well-being are important, and taking action can be a powerful tool in steering your life on course and providing relief. Every mental or emotional pain point, regardless of how “small” or “big” it may seem, deserves proper care.

If you have ever felt the weight of grief, loneliness, or other mental or emotional health issues, consider scheduling an appointment with one of the board-certified counselors at Thriveworks Counseling in Amarillo, TX. They will customize a care plan that’s designed to make a powerful difference in your life.

What Disorders Do Psychiatrists Treat?

Mental healthcare treatment looks different for different people. While many people associate psychiatric care with disorders such as schizophrenia and severe major depression, psychiatrists are able to address a variety of mental illnesses across a range of ages.

Some of the most common reasons people seek help are:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Mood swings
  • Personality disorders
  • Substance abuse
  • Grief
  • Family counseling
  • Couples therapy
  • Child behavioral therapy
  • Eating disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Panic attacks

Self-care begins the moment you call. Regardless of what mental block you’re facing, the medical professionals at Thriveworks in Amarillo, TX, are standing by to create a solution-based treatment plan that works for your life and your schedule.

The Role of a Psychiatrist in Psychiatric Care

Psychiatrists and other psychiatric providers can diagnose, treat, and prevent a range of mental and emotional disorders. Because they have a medical degree, they’re able to prescribe medications and provide psychological support as you navigate your mental health journey.

They might offer a combination of treatment methods. This can include psychotherapy and medications or providing referrals to other specialists. It might also mean providing urgent care and testing for both physical and psychological ailments to determine the root cause of your concerns. Regardless of the treatment methods they choose, they are there to provide attentive care and to help with long-term goal setting and self-care tips.

Together, you and your Thriveworks specialist will outline a treatment plan that serves your needs. Through each step in the process, you can expect your psychiatric provider in Amarillo, TX, to explain the particulars of your treatment and the benefits of any prescriptions.
