    When to see a Psychiatry Doctor?

    Some of the sub-specialities of psychiatry include:

    • Child and adolescent psychiatry
    • Geriatric psychiatry concerning elderly patients
    • Emergency psychiatry
    • Military psychiatry
    • Neuropsychiatry
    • Sleep specialists

    For most psychiatric disorders, there are no laboratory tests to confirm the condition. Instead, a patient undergoes a series of psychological tests, although biochemical tests are also performed to check the patient’s physical health status.

    Psychiatrists use several forms of treatment in managing mental health illness including psychotherapy, medications such as antipsychotics, mood stabilizers and antidepressants. Psychotherapy may include cognitive behavior therapy, family therapy or group counselling. Hospitalization may also be needed in severe cases.
