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 Houston, 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 Houston 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?

The state of our mental health is critical to our overall health and wellbeing. Now, day to day events and interactions with others can have either a positive or a negative effect on our mental wellbeing. For example, a disagreement with your spouse can leave a bad taste in your mouth; or, more accurately, leave you feeling sad, angry, or disappointed. Contrarily, a night spent bonding with your spouse can leave you feeling on top of the world.

When we have those negative encounters with our loved ones, we must work to address these conflicts and manage any negative emotions that come from them. The same is true for other mental health challenges that we run into. Sometimes, we can’t accomplish this on our own. We must work with a mental health professional to truly understand and manage the problem at hand.

Mental health professionals specialize in offering mental health help. Psychiatrists are one type of mental health professional who are experts at diagnosing, treating, and preventing mental illness. If you’re exhibiting any symptoms of a mental illness or your mental health is at jeopardy, due to any number of mental health conditions, you should consider consulting a psychiatrist.

If you’re in Houston, TX or nearby, consider calling our Thriveworks Counseling office in Houston, TX. We can set you up with an online psychiatrist right away. And you can look forward to talking to a provider in a telehealth session. This means that you get to attend your appointment from the comfort and convenience of home (or anywhere else you feel comfortable).

Who Should Talk to a Psychiatrist?

Psychiatrists can help many different people, as mental health problems are wide and varied. They can help their clients better understand and manage their mental health conditions and other challenges that affect their mental wellbeing as well. However, as we said earlier, they specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental disorders.

The answer to this question, “Who should talk to a psychiatrist?” is a loaded one. The following people are just a few examples of those who should consider talking to a psychiatrist:

  • Someone who is experiencing symptoms of depression or anxiety
  • Someone who is feeling out of control of their thoughts and emotions
  • Someone who is feelings significantly stressed, at work, at home, or otherwise
  • Someone who has gone through a traumatic experience
  • Someone who is grieving after the death of a friend, family member, or pet
  • Someone who is in need of medication management

Unlike other mental health professionals, psychiatrists can offer their clients medication management. This means that they can prescribe medication and then monitor their clients over the period of time that they take this medication. They’ll want to make sure that the individual takes the medication as instructed and that the positive effects outweigh the negative effects.

If you are suffering due to a mental illness or you’re still seeking assessment and diagnosis for anxiety, PTSD, depression, bipolar disorder, addiction, or another mental disorder, consider talking to a psychiatrist at Thriveworks Counseling in Houston, TX. If you’d like to do so, call our office and we’ll help you get started.
