Psychiatrists are doctors, who specialize in working with mental health and related disorders. With the rise of awareness of mental health, the need for a psychiatrist is also increasing. There has been a long history of prejudice against those with mental illness. But with the rise of scientific studies, and human rights policies, our medical sector has become patient-friendly. It puts the needs of the patients as a priority. Their overall well-being, physical, social, emotional, and mental is what the healthcare team focuses on.
A Good Psychiatrist
A psychiatrist is skilled in assessing the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral/physical characteristics of mental health problems in the patient.
There are many qualities that you would look for in a good psychiatrist.
- One is the depth of knowledge they have. You can research more on it using the internet, reviews, and even by having a preliminary session with the doctor.
- The second thing you look for is empathy and availability. How closely are they able to understand, reflect, and willing to take the time and effort needed to explain the treatments to you?
- Good listening and observation skills along with the ability to ‘work with the patient’ are also necessary when undergoing therapy with a professional.
Psychiatrists can work in many fields, such as clinics, hospitals, universities, community centers, correction facilities, military/government settings, etc. Models of treatment like therapy, medications, behavioral interventions, and rehabilitation programs, are used depending on the requirement of each patient.
Mental Health Disorders
Some of the most common disorders that psychiatrists work with are
Characterized by excessive worry, apprehension and fear due to a person or event, anxiety disorder symptoms must persist for 6 months to be diagnosed.
The depressive disorder comes under the category of mood disorders. Individuals with depression show disturbed eating or sleeping habits, loss of pleasure in activities, exhaustion, feeling worthless, and hopeless, and slowing down of movements.
OCD is characterized by obsession over a thought, followed by the compulsion to reduce it, by doing a repetitive ritual. This ritual takes up a good amount of time in the day. And this ritual does not reduce anxiety. For example, excessive washing of hands, and placing objects in a certain way.
- BIPOLAR AFFECTIVE DISORDER
The bipolar affective disorder is a complex mood disorder with symptoms that range from feeling worthless and hopeless, lack of interest in things, and social withdrawal, to grandiose ideas, restlessness, and hyperactivity.
It is a disorder that distorts a person’s sense of reality. It appears in the form of distortion of thought, perception, communication, and movement.
It affects how a person thinks, feels, or behaves. It causes severe distress and can be disabling.
