A psychiatrist helps patients who experience psychological problems. A psychiatrist assesses a person’s state of mind and, using a range of psychological treatments, helps the patient to recover from mental problems. Psychiatrists are trained to provide the best care in the most compassionate and patient way.
Psychiatrists use the biopsychological model of understanding, which emphasizes personal background such as past experiences, culture, family, and work or medical conditions.
Through their understanding of psychology and psychotherapy, a psychiatrist can help patients to partially or fully recover. Medication should be prescribed only when all other methods of treatment have failed.
Mental disorders treated by psychiatrists include phobias, anxiety disorders, panic attacks, depression, and schizophrenia.
