What is Psychiatry?
Dedicated to the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of mental disorders, Psychiatry is the branch of medical science that manages a spectrum of mental issues related to behaviour, cognition, perception, mood, and more.
What constitutes a psychiatric assessment?
An initial and basic psychiatric assessment normally includes a curation of the patient’s case history and evaluation of the present mental health status, while physical examinations may be advised as fitting to the patient’s condition. In today’s practice, psychiatric assessments and treatment often combine psychiatric medication and psychotherapy as they go hand in hand.
