Benefits of Seeing a Psychiatrist

A psychiatrist is a highly trained medical professional who has practiced general medicine for at least one year and then trained in psychiatry for a minimum of 6 years. Psychiatrists play an instrumental role in making a formal diagnosis of your mental health and then formulating a personalized treatment plan based on the type of therapy that will provide you with the most benefit. Psychiatrists also are able to prescribe medication for mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, or any other psychiatric diagnosis.
