Psychiatrist FAQs

What is a psychiatrist?

Psychiatrists are medical doctors who are specialized in diagnosing, treating, and preventing mental health conditions. They are different from other mental health professionals as they can prescribe medication to help manage mental health conditions. Psychiatrists offer services like evaluations (using physical exams and lab tests), diagnosis of mental health conditions, and therapy. Conditions psychiatrists help manage include anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and more. You can find a psychiatrist by asking for recommendations from your primary care provider, searching for community mental health clinics, or finding online services that offer telepsychiatry. If you don’t have insurance, you can find affordable mental healthcare by contacting a local National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) representative.
