Psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders and can prescribe medications. A psychologist is a mental health professional who uses talk therapy to help people cope with mental health issues.

During your first appointment with a psychiatrist, they will likely ask you about your symptoms, medical history, and any medications you are taking. They may also perform a physical exam and order laboratory tests if necessary.

The length of treatment for mental disorders varies depending on the individual's condition and the type of treatment being used. Some people may require short-term treatment, while others may require long-term treatment.

A Psychiatrist is Medical Doctor, who specializes in Mental Health Disorders. She/he is usually the first point of contact. She/He will assess the patient comprehensively (all details of your life, from childhood to present time).

A psychiatrist may sometimes request certain investigations to rule out physical causes to the mental health symptoms (e.g., Blood test, MRI scan of head, EEG). Specific psychometric tests may be requested from a clinical psychologists to complement their assessment. Other medical disciplines may be referred to also for their specialist opinion if necessary (e.g., cardiologist, endocrinologist, gastroenterologist) to rule out other conditions or medical explanations.

Treatment plans may include taking medication or engaging in a specific Psychological Therapy (e.g., Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Interpersonal Therapy (IPT)). The decision is based on the severity of the symptoms and importantly the patient choice (for a child the parent’s preference). The psychoeducation is crucial at this point as the patient need to be well informed in order to take her/his decision. The Psychiatrist will then review progress on a regular basis in order to monitor improvement, make changes to the pharmacological treatment when needed and continue their evaluation.
