Psychiatrists use various treatments to help you manage your mental health condition, including psychotherapy and medications.

Psychotherapy is a treatment that involves establishing a close, talking relationship between you and your therapist. Two examples of psychotherapy include:

  • behavioral therapy, which focuses on your learning and behavior to change unhealthy behavior patterns
  • cognitive therapy, which focuses on your thoughts and shows a relationship between dysfunctional thinking and unhealthy emotions or behaviors

Medications are often used in combination with psychotherapy to help you treat your mental health condition. Some examples of medications include:

  • antidepressants, which psychiatrists use to treat depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and more
  • psychotropics, which psychiatrists use to treat delusions and hallucinations, such as with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia
  • sedatives, which are medications used to treat anxiety and insomnia
  • stimulants, which are medications used to treat ADHD

A psychiatrist can help if the cause of your mental health condition is unknown or if you have a complex mental health condition that requires medication, including:

  • bipolar disorder
  • schizophrenia
  • severe depression

It’s important to know that you are not alone. Psychiatrists have the training and expertise to provide you with the resources and care you need.

What should I expect from a psychiatrist appointment?

Chevron Icon

During your first appointment, your psychiatrist will talk with you about the reason for your visit, including why you think you need therapy. They’ll ask about your symptoms, how long you’ve had them, and what treatment you received in the past, if any. You can expect the conversation to include a discussion about your family, history, work, and other personal matters.

Toward the end of your visit, your psychiatrist will discuss your treatment plan and session frequency, which may include some recommended medications. You may use the end of your appointment as an opportunity to ask your psychiatrist any questions you have about your treatment plan.

What questions should I ask my psychiatrist?

It’s important to show up to your psychiatrist appointment prepared. To help you get started, we’ve created a good list of questions for you to ask:

  • What’s my diagnosis?
  • Are underlying medical issues causing my mental health condition?
  • Should I get a second opinion?
  • Which psychotherapy, if any, would be the most helpful for me?
  • How much experience do you have treating my mental health condition?
  • Will you be available during a crisis?
  • How will this treatment help me?
  • Are there medications you recommend I try? How will they help?
  • How will I know if treatment is working for me?
  • How frequently do you recommend we meet?

You may use these questions as a starting point, but feel free to add your own. A good practice is to also ask for additional information and take notes during your appointment.
