What is psychiatry?
Psychiatry is a branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental, emotional and behavioral disorders. It overlaps with psychology and the well-being sciences and is part of the field of behavioral medicine. Psychiatrists are physicians who specialize in mental disorders such as mood disorders, anxiety disorders, psychoses, and substance use disorders. Psychiatrists are qualified to evaluate the mental and physical aspects of these disorders.
Their primary intervention is pharmacology, which involves the use of medications to balance chemicals in the brain. Psychologists are psychotherapists who use talk therapy and other interventions to help individuals, couples, families, or organizations identify and address problems. Other psychologists, such as occupational therapists, nurses, and social workers, make up the interdisciplinary team needed to fully assess and plan a patient’s treatment.
How do I know if I need to see a specialist?
Everyone goes to a specialist for different reasons and at different stages of their lives. There are dozens of different disorders that may arise in childhood and others that may develop in adulthood or later in life. If you are experiencing stress, anxiety or fear, counseling may or may not be recommended, and treatment may or may not be started. Psychotic symptoms can occur suddenly, such as panic attacks, frightening hallucinations, or suicidal thoughts.
They can also be chronic, such as feelings of sadness, hopelessness or anxiety that don’t go away. They may also be felt alone or noticed by others. All of these symptoms can affect our daily lives, moods and relationships. However, these symptoms are often treatable and can help people regain their balance.
