Frequently Asked Questions

Psychiatry is a medical speciality dedicated to the study, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental illnesses and emotional disorders. Psychiatrists are medical doctors with specialized training in understanding the complex interplay between physical and psychological health.

Psychiatrists treat a broad spectrum of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, eating disorders, and substance use disorders. They also address issues such as grief, stress, and relationship problems.

Individuals should consider consulting a psychiatrist when experiencing persistent changes in mood, behaviour, or cognitive function. This may include feelings of sadness, excessive worry, difficulty concentrating, sleep disturbances, or impaired daily functioning.

Collaboration between the two disciplines is common for comprehensive mental health care.

Diagnosis involves thoroughly evaluating a person's mental and physical health history. Psychiatrists use interviews, psychological assessments, and, in some cases, lab tests or imaging studies to determine the presence and nature of mental health conditions.
