What is a Psychiatrist
Psychiatrists are medical doctors trained to diagnose and treat mental illness and emotional problems. They have undergraduate medical qualifications with postgraduate medical training and psychiatric qualifications. They review your physical and mental health symptoms and investigations to formulate the how and why this has happened. This ensures an holistic approach embracing the biology and psychology of your condition and the body-mind interface.
Psychiatrists can prescribe medications, and provide psychological treatments, practical suggestions and lifestyle advice, as part of the treatment plan. They have met rigorous standards, in theoretical, practical and ethical domains. They are driven to improve the lives of their patients and their families.
