Frequently Asked Questions

Psychiatry is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental illnesses and emotional disorders. Psychiatrists are medical doctors who can prescribe medication and provide a comprehensive approach to mental health, combining medical and psychological treatments.

Psychiatrists treat a wide range of mental health conditions, including but not limited to depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, ADHD, PTSD, and various mood and personality disorders.

Psychiatrists offer a combination of therapies, including psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and medication management. They assess each patient individually and create personalized treatment plans that may include therapy, medication, lifestyle changes, and support from other healthcare professionals.

Common symptoms of depression include persistent sadness, loss of interest or pleasure in activities, changes in appetite and sleep patterns, and feelings of hopelessness. Anxiety disorders often involve excessive worry, restlessness, irritability, and physical symptoms like rapid heartbeat and muscle tension.

Diagnosis involves a clinical assessment by a psychiatrist, including discussions about symptoms, medical history, and their impact on daily life. Treatment options may include therapy, medication (antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications), lifestyle changes, and relaxation techniques.

ADHD is diagnosed based on specific criteria outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). A comprehensive evaluation involves a thorough assessment of symptoms, medical history, and behavioral observations, often including input from parents, teachers, and caregivers.

Treatment for ADHD often includes behavioral therapy, psychoeducation, and, in some cases, stimulant medications or non-stimulant medications to improve focus and impulse control. Therapy can help individuals develop coping strategies and improve organizational skills.

Behavioral strategies such as creating structured routines, breaking tasks into smaller steps, using visual aids, providing positive reinforcement, and setting realistic goals can be beneficial for individuals with ADHD.

Traumatic experiences involve events that cause extreme fear, helplessness, or horror, leading to a range of emotional and psychological responses. PTSD can develop when an individual has difficulty processing and recovering from the trauma, experiencing symptoms like flashbacks, nightmares, and severe anxiety.

Early signs of schizophrenia may include social withdrawal, changes in hygiene and self-care, disorganized thinking and speech, paranoia, and hallucinations. Symptoms can vary widely between individuals.
