A psychiatrist consultation can diagnose and provide treatment recommendations for diseases and conditions that affect the mind.
What does a psychiatrist consultation involve?
A psychiatrist consultation is a chance for patients to ask questions and raise concerns about their mental health needs. It’s also an opportunity for our psychiatrists to assess your current health, identify any issues or potential problems, and recommend a course of treatment.
What does a psychiatrist specialize in?
Psychiatrists are highly experienced, qualified specialists who diagnose, treat, and manage conditions that affect the mind. Psychiatrists have the skills necessary to work closely with people on their particular mental illness or emotional or behavioural disorder.
What does the psychiatrist want to discuss?
During the consultation, the psychiatrist will want to discuss your complete medical history. This may include:
- Any medications you take or have taken
- Any family history of issues affecting the mind
- Your lifestyle, such as whether or not you smoke and how active you are
- Information relevant to your problem, including sports and fitness activities and what your work involves
- Any symptoms you are experiencing or have experienced
Why have a psychiatrist consultation?
A psychiatrist consultation can allow for a comprehensive biological, psychological, and social evaluation to understand your needs and the reasons behind any mental health issues, and recommend next steps.
Psychiatrist consultation outcomes
The psychiatrist can assess your symptoms and recommend next steps, which may include a particular course of treatment.
Preparing for a psychiatrist consultation
Before the consultation, we recommend that you gather together the information the psychiatrist might need, think about what you want to get out of the consultation, and prepare any questions.
The specialist will want to collect basic personal information, including name, age, and health care number, as well as the name of your family doctor if you have one, or any other health professionals you are working with.
