What is Psychiatry and who is a psychiatrist?

Psychiatry is a medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental, emotional, and behavioral problems. A psychiatrist is a doctor who specializes in mental health. Psychiatrists are trained to evaluate both the mental and physical components of psychiatric issues.

For several reasons, people seek psychiatric care. Sudden problems, such as a panic attack, frightening hallucinations, suicidal thoughts, may develop or they might be more long-term, such as emotions of despair, hopelessness, or anxiety that never seem to go away, or issues that make functioning normally in daily life seem out of control You can find a Psychiatrist in Mumbai through Credihealth to get depression counseling.

How do they diagnose patients? 

Psychiatrists, as physicians, can prescribe or administer a wide range of medical laboratory and psychological tests, which, when coupled with patient talks, create a picture of a patient's physical and mental state. Their education and clinical training prepare them to understand the complex relationship between emotional thoughts and other medical illnesses, as well as the connections with genetics and family history, to evaluate medical and psychological data, to make a diagnosis, and to collaborate with patients to develop treatment plans.

What treatments are used? 

Depending on the needs of each patient, psychiatrists utilize several therapies, including various types of psychotherapy, drugs, psychosocial therapies, and other therapies (such as electroconvulsive therapy or ECT).

Psychotherapy, often known as talk therapy, is a treatment that entails a conversation between a therapist and a patient. It can be used to treat a wide range of mental problems and emotional issues. The objective of psychotherapy is for the patient to be able to function better by eliminating or controlling distressing symptoms. Treatment may take a few sessions over a week or two, depending on the severity of the condition, or it may take many sessions over years. Psychotherapy can be done alone, as a couple, with a family, or in a group setting.

There are several types of psychotherapies. Some psychotherapies assist patients to improve their behaviors or thinking patterns, psychotherapies that assist patients to investigate the impact of past relationships and experiences on their current behaviors, and psychotherapies that are targeted to help address specific issues. Cognitive behavior therapy is a goal-oriented, problem-solving treatment. Psychoanalysis is a type of rigorous individual psychotherapy that involves repeated sessions over several years.

How is a medication prescribed?

Psychiatrists use most drugs in the same manner as doctors use them to treat high blood pressure or diabetes. Psychiatrists can prescribe drugs to assist treat mental problems after extensive exams.

While the particular mechanism of action of psychiatric drugs is unknown, they may benefit chemical signaling and communication inside the brain, perhaps alleviating certain symptoms of mental diseases. Patients on long-term pharmaceutical treatment will need to consult with their psychiatrist regularly to assess the medicine's efficiency and any potential adverse effects.

What medication is used?

Psychiatrists commonly prescribe medication in combination with psychotherapy. The different classes of medication are listed below-

• Antidepressants are medications that are prescribed to treat depression, panic disorder, PTSD, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, borderline personality disorder, and eating disorders.

• Antipsychotic medicines are used to treat psychotic symptoms such as delusions and hallucinations, as well as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

• Sedatives and anxiolytics are medications that are used to treat anxiety and sleeplessness.

• Hypnotics are substances that are used to induce and sustain sleep.

• Mood stabilizers are drugs that are used in the treatment of the bipolar disorder.

• Stimulants are medications used to treat ADHD.

Other therapies are also utilized on occasion. Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), a medical treatment in which electrical currents are applied to the brain, is most commonly used to treat severe depression that has not responded to conventional therapies.
