If you have a long-time hobby you enjoy, you might not remember how you got started. But no matter the hobby, there’s a good chance that you started at a different skill level than you’re at now. The reason you’ve gotten better at your hobby is that you stuck with it regardless of any less-than-perfect beginnings.
Starting therapy can feel daunting, but just as you didn’t give up on your favorite hobby or pastime, you shouldn’t give up on pursuing quality mental health. Managing your mental state takes time and energy, but it’s well worth it. Creating a stable mental picture can help you better engage with friends, family, and the world around you.
Psychiatric services can help you take control of the anxiety, depression, and fears that have stopped you from achieving goals, communicating with others, and appreciating yourself. Therapy is about strengthening your mind and spirit, and we know that our psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Logan, UT have the training, education, and passion necessary to help you during this process.
If you’d like to speak to one of our online providers, simply reach out and call us to set up an appointment.
What Do Psychiatrists Treat?
For many people, the term “psychiatric care” is associated with severe mental health issues. But board-certified psychiatrists offer a number of services that suit a wide variety of needs. Many of our clients decide to see a psychiatrist because of:
- Major life changes such as college, divorce, or the birth of a child
- Self-esteem issues
- Career-related problems
- Relationship troubles with spouses, friends, colleagues, and family
- Depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses and disorders
- LGBTQIA+ challenges
- Grief and loss
Some people feel hesitant to see a psychiatrist because they think their problems are too large to fathom, or they’re too small to bother with. But the issues listed above impact many people from different backgrounds. Your emotional and mental challenges can be addressed if given a chance. To see how a psychiatrist can help you manage your mental health, consider scheduling a session with us at Thriveworks in Logan, UT.
Psychiatry Practices and Treatments
Working with a psychiatrist is similar to other forms of mental health services. Your psychiatrist will spend time talking to you about your symptoms and goals for treatment. They’ll discuss how your issues impact the rest of your life before developing an individualized treatment plan.
Most treatment plans involve psychotherapy, medication, or a combination of multiple treatment methodologies. Here’s what to expect from each:
- Psychotherapy: Also referred to as talk therapy, psychotherapy focuses on discussing your mental health issues with your provider. You’ll talk about your symptoms and learn ways to manage them. Each session will be different –– you might discuss a symptom you’re experiencing or learn new ways to manage stress and redirect your thought patterns.
- Medicine: Psychiatrists have medical degrees and can prescribe medications for their clients. Mental health medication can help reduce symptoms of mental disorders by targeting chemicals in your brain. If medication is right for you, your provider will go over what to expect from your prescription, including any benefits and side effects.
Psychiatry appointments can give you the space to discuss the issues you’re going through. Many of us are extremely busy and don’t have the time to stop and think about our mental health. Working with a psychiatrist can give you a compassionate, private space to discuss your life and find more happiness.
