We all want the very best for our health care. Our mental health should be no different. Not all mental health facilities offer the level of care of a psychiatrist. While traditional counseling with cognitive behavioral interventions are often very useful, at Thriveworks Austin, we have psychiatrists available if needed. A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who has specialized training in mental health care. They are also able to prescribe medications, which can be helpful in many situations.
There is a misconception that psychiatrists only deal with the most serious mental health issues. While they are trained and able to deal with extreme situations, they can also be helpful in more common disorders.
Psychiatrists can assist with:
- Addiction issues
- Anxiety disorders, including panic attacks
- Autism and other developmental disorders in children
- Bipolar disorder
- Eating disorders
- Personality disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
