Psychiatry

Psychiatry is the branch of medical science that deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental, emotional and behavioral disorders.

A psychiatrist is a specialist who specializes in psychological health, including substance use disorders. Psychiatrists are well qualified to assess and treat both the mental and physical aspects of mental health problems.

Psychiatrists can advise or perform a full range of medical diagnostic and psychological tests which when combined with discussions with patients helps provide a clear picture of a patient’s mental and physical state. Their education and training enable them to understand the complex relationship between emotional health, medical illnesses, genetics and family history. It helps in evaluating psychological and medical data, to make a correct diagnosis, and to work efficiently with patients to develop treatment plans.

When should I seek help from a Psychiatrist?

People seek psychiatric help for many reasons. The issues can be sudden, such as frightening hallucinations, panic attack, thoughts of suicide, or hearing “weird sounds.” Or it can be more long-term problems, like feelings of unhappiness, hopelessness, irritability or anxiety that never seems to go away. These issues can interfere with daily life and can worsen if not treated in a timely manner.
