It is vital to recognize that effective mental health care begins with a correct diagnosis. Our experienced team of psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners are experts in testing and diagnosing mental health conditions. This understanding is the cornerstone of effective treatment.
Our medical providers are adept at diagnosing and formulating personalized treatment plans that may or may not involve medication. We prioritize your holistic well-being and tailor our care to suit your needs.
Gaining a comprehensive understanding of your condition is a detailed process that can involve multiple steps.
- Physical Examination: You may undergo a physical examination to exclude any underlying physical factors that could contribute to your symptoms. By eliminating these possibilities, we can focus on the root cause of your condition.
- Laboratory Investigations: Laboratory tests can serve as valuable tools in uncovering potential contributing factors. These tests might involve assessing your thyroid function and screening for substances like alcohol or drugs that could impact your mental state.
- Psychological Evaluation: Insights into your psychological state may be learned through a psychological evaluation. Our psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners can carry out these assessments, which can include discussions about your symptoms, thought patterns, emotional experiences, and behavioral trends. To provide a more comprehensive understanding, you might also be asked to complete a questionnaire.
Mental health conditions can impact various aspects of daily life, including academic performance, work productivity, and interpersonal relationships.
