Starting Psychiatry/medication

What is psychiatry?

Psychiatry is a branch of medicine that focuses specifically on the medical and psychotherapeutic treatment of mental conditions and disorders.

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 Beaumont, TX specifically offer online psychiatry to their clients.

Does psychiatry deal with anxiety?

Psychiatrists are among the mental health professionals who can prescribe anxiety medication, and they are also capable of offering therapeutic treatment for anxiety as well, though not every psychiatric professional offers therapy. Medication management can be offered via in-person or online psychiatry.

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

A therapist has an education specifically rooted in therapeutic practice, approaches, techniques, and treatment. They cannot prescribe medications for clients, thought 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's the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist?

Psychologists and psychiatrists receive differing educations, as psychologists are not medically trained the same way that psychiatrists are. Psychologists mainly specialize in providing therapy services and diagnoses for mental disorders — something that most therapists cannot provide — while psychiatrists manage medications and sometimes provide therapy services. The main difference is that psychologists (generally) cannot prescribe medications the way psychiatrists can.

Do psychiatric NPs treat mental disorders?

Psychiatric nurse practitioners (NPs) treat and diagnose disorders, prescribe and manage medications, and offer psychotherapy services, too.

How do psychiatriac 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.

Is psychiatry/medication conducted in person or online?

At Thriveworks, we offer online psychiatry as well as in-person therapy services for optimal comfort and convenience.

How long does psychiatry last?

Psychiatric services at Thriveworks Beaumont 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 years. treatment length is heavily dependent on the condition(s) being treated, the course of treatment, and the client's goals for treatment.

Need more help deciding?

Rachel’s anxiety has held her back for many years. She’s done her best to conceal her inner turmoil, but on the inside, she never truly relaxes. The few times that she has opened up to her friends or family, they’ve suggested that she could talk with a mental health professional, but she feels like doing so would make her appear and feel weak or dependent. However, she knows that the longer she avoids these feelings, the more her anxiety will affect her daily life. 

If you’re like Rachel and you’re suffering from persistent mental health concerns, just know that you’re not alone—and there’s no shame in what you’re feeling. At Thriveworks in Beaumont, TX, we know that there’s a lot of stigma and negativity that surrounds topics of mental health. But these misconceptions shouldn’t hold you back from getting the stability and support that you deserve. 

Many people have found that our psychiatry program provides them with the quality mental health care that they need. Online psychiatry with Thriveworks in Beaumont is a great way to connect with a psychiatrist and to start making strides towards better mental health. 

How Can a Psychiatrist Help Me?

Psychiatrists are a specialized type of mental health professional, and they offer our clients a unique way to mitigate and manage the symptoms of more persistent and disruptive types of mental health conditions and disorders. Psychiatrists are set apart from other providers with their medical background; they’re also doctors, in addition to being licensed therapists. They have the ability to: 

  • Diagnose and treat many different types of mental health disorders 
  • Prescribe helpful medication to assist clients with their symptoms 
  • Use talk and behavioral therapy in combination with a prescription 

Don’t let their medical background intimidate you though. Our psychiatric team in Beaumont, TX wants to address any concerns or questions you have about your treatment plan. Even if you aren’t exactly sure what’s wrong, they’ll partner with you to help diagnose and manage the symptoms of mental illness. Some common disorders and conditions that our psychiatrists help everyday people with include: 

  • ADHD 
  • OCD 
  • Depression 
  • Social anxiety 
  • PTSD 
  • Eating disorders
  • Recovery from alcoholism or drug abuse
  • And many other mental health conditions 

While some of our clients receive prescriptions, others don’t—it all depends on the person’s needs. Some of the medications that psychiatrists use include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, or prescriptions like cognitive performance enhancers. These medications aren’t intended to fix a client’s problems on their own but might give clients the extra help they need to enjoy a better quality of living.  

The Benefits of Online Psychiatry

If you’re like most people, it probably feels like there’s never enough time in your day. We’d like to give a little back with our online psychiatric services. Even when things are hectic, you’ll still be able to make time for your mental health needs. While stopping to do so might seem selfish or unnecessary, the truth is that balancing our mental health can help us to be more present and engaged during the moments that matter. 

Online psychiatry might benefit you if: 

  • Live too far away from your provider’s office 
  • Frequently travel or work odd hours 
  • Have health conditions that restrict your mobility
  • Take care of elderly family members or children 
  • Are uncomfortable speaking with a provider in-person 

Plus, rest easy during your session knowing that your private information is being kept safe. Our providers adhere to strict confidentiality guidelines from the APA and HIPAA. Our psychiatry team at our Beaumont office is looking forward to providing you with quality virtual service.
