Psychiatric Provider

An Introduction to Psychiatric Providers and Their Services 

A psychiatric provider is an individual who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of mental health issues. This person could be a psychiatrist, psychologist, or another type of mental health professional. Whether you are looking for help managing anxiety or depression, help with addiction recovery, or advice on dealing with a difficult situation in your life, a psychiatric provider can offer assistance. Let’s take a closer look at some of the services these professionals provide. 

Psychiatric Evaluation 

The first step for many people seeing a psychiatric provider is to receive an evaluation. During this process, the professional will ask you questions about your symptoms and lifestyle habits in order to gain an understanding of what might be causing your distress and how best to treat it. Depending on the complexity and severity of your condition, they may also order lab tests or refer you to other medical specialists for additional testing.  


Once the evaluation is complete, the provider will create an individualized treatment plan that may include therapy sessions with them or another mental health professional. Therapy can take many forms depending on the patient’s needs and preferences. For example, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on helping people understand their thoughts and beliefs and how they affect their feelings and behaviors; psychodynamic therapy explores past experiences to gain insight into current relationships; interpersonal therapy helps individuals relate better with others; among many other types of therapies that can be tailored to each client's needs.  

Medication Management 

In some cases, medications may be prescribed by the psychiatric provider as part of the treatment plan. The most commonly prescribed medications for mental health issues are antidepressants, antianxiety drugs, antipsychotics, and mood stabilizers. In addition to prescribing medications if needed, the provider will also manage any potential side effects that arise from taking them. They will also monitor any changes in symptoms or behavior that occur while taking them so that adjustments can be made if necessary.
