Some people feel shy about addressing their depression, anxiety and other mental health issues. Perhaps you think you should be able to “snap out of it” or shrug these problems off by yourself. Or maybe you’re embarrassed by what friends might think or how family might react.
The truth is, most people suffer from mental health issues at some point in their life. There is no shame in seeking out help to improve your well-being. In fact, it’s one of the kindest and bravest things you can do for yourself and those around you.
Many people suffer from emotional disorders and mental illnesses but don’t know how to get the help they need. The answer, in many cases, is psychiatric counseling. Psychiatrists evaluate their clients’ mental health to provide a diagnosis and treatment plan. Sometimes that includes talk therapy, other times they prescribe medications, and in some cases the treatment program calls for both.
Regardless of your situation, you can rest assured that our psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Katy, TX can help you find a treatment plan that works for you.
Would a Psychiatrist Be Able to Help Me?
Psychiatrists are highly educated and trained medical doctors who specialize in treating mental health problems. They earn their degree in medical school, and receive years of specialized training in the field of psychiatry before becoming a licensed psychiatrist.
Some people require psychiatric help due to serious symptoms like panic attacks and suicidal thoughts. But you don’t need to have severe symptoms to seek treatment for your mental health. There are many psychological and social components to any mental health concern, and they can look very different for different people. Some people may even suffer from low-grade anxiety or depression for years before they realize they could use some professional support.
The most common reasons people reach out for psychiatric help include the following:
- Anxiety disorders
- Mood disorders (bipolar disorder, e.g.)
- Addictions and substance abuse
- Eating disorders (bulimia and anorexia, e.g.)
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Difficulty adjusting to life changes
- Thinking suicidal thoughts
- Thinking about hurting other people
- Intentionally harming yourself
- Sleeping problems (insomnia, e.g.)
- Delusions or hallucinations
- Memory problems
- Emotional outbursts
