Do I need to see a psychiatrist?

There are typically signs of mental problems, emotional problems or behavioral health issues that lead patients to see a psychiatrist. Mental illness is more common than most people think. Furthermore, about one fifth of Americans suffer some type of mental disorder, such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar disorder or ADD/ADHD. Additionally, a significant percentage of the population experiences substance abuse, whether alone or as part of a dual diagnosis disorder with a co-occurring mental health condition. Also, these conditions develop for a number of reasons, including stress, bio-chemical imbalances, trauma, environmental influences and genetics.

Psychiatric care and your overall wellness start with a psychiatric evaluation. Also, at MedPsych Integrated, we develop a health and genetic profile in addition to providing mental health diagnosis. Additionally, through genetic testing and a thorough health screening, we can recommend the best treatment for your very individual needs. Medical and genetic tests also provide a good starting point for when we prescribe medication.

Below are some key signs that you can benefit from seeing an integrative psychiatrist:

Emotional Problems

We all suffer anger, sadness and irritability. These feelings are part of normal, everyday life. But when your emotions feel uncontrolled or unmanageable, psychiatry can help. Also, they help you learn how to effectively manage your emotions and avoid triggering situations.

Sleep Problems

Your sleep quality is a clear indicator of your mental health status. People with untreated mental health problems often suffer insomnia and other sleep-related issues. Additionally, these issues include trouble getting to sleep, waking too early and waking throughout the night. Also, as part of sleep problems, most do not enter the deep stages of sleep require for physical and mental restoration. Furthermore, this, in turn, makes it harder to deal with mental health symptoms and creates a cycle of behavioral concerns.

Substance Use

About half of Americans with mental health problems turn to substances like drugs and alcohol to cope with their symptoms rather than psychiatry. Likewise, many people with substance abuse problems develop mental health conditions. Furthermore, needing to drink or use drugs on a regular basis indicates a problem treatable by an integrative psychiatrist.

Performance Changes

Changes in work, school or home life performance possibly indicates need for psychiatric testing. Also, missing deadlines and finding it difficult to concentrate on your work tasks are not problems you must struggle with alone. In fact, these are symptoms of a range of treatable conditions, even conveniently through Telehealth.

Psychiatry Can Help with Being Socially Withdrawn

Depression and anxiety often cause people suffering these conditions to withdraw from favorite activities, family and friends. Additionally, this withdrawal happens as they struggle to control their feelings or find it difficult to relate to others.

Physical Illnesses

Your mental and physical wellness intertwine. This is why you need an integrated mind-body approach to your overall well-being. Also, an integrative psychiatrist helps patients who suffer recurring physical symptoms with clear causes. Furthermore, such symptoms include stomach aches, headaches and other undiagnosed pain.

Excessive Anxiety

Psychiatrists help people who feel excessively worried, stressed or sad in each of our psychiatry sessions. Furthermore, these feelings often include thoughts of suicide, particularly after a history of trauma.

Nightmares or Temper Flares

Nightmares and temper flares on a regular basis disrupt everyday life, relationships and physical health. Additionally, your psychiatrist can help you resolve the foundational issues causing these symptoms in psychiatry sessions.
