Psychiatry

Psychiatrist are doctors who have specialised in this field to become expert in helping either adults or children and young people with their mental health issues. Psychiatrists have expertise in the study, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental disorders. These include various mood, behavioural, cognitive and perceptual abnormalities. Treatment may include medication but often there are other techniques which can help manage such conditions as anxiety, depression and phobias. Psychiatrists will often work in conjunction with a psychologist or other mental health therapists.

Most mental health problems can be treated as an out-patient but we have links with specialist inpatient units if admission is thought to be a helpful intervention.
