Psychiatric care covers a wide field. It ranges from short to long term treatment, and even permanent care. It can involve medical treatment, physical caretaking, psychological therapy, and combinations of them. It can be administered in a person’s home environment, in consultation rooms, hospitals, or specialist institutions. Lay people often find it confusing to decide where to go and what methods to choose for specific emotional or behaviour problems.

Unraveling psychiatric care

Pinpointing a disorder can be confusing for the average person, but we can all sense it when someone acts detrimentally. Mental health research has reached such refinement that it now requires dedicated professionalism to fully understand it. However, there is no need to explore the maze on your own.  Qualified doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists or therapists can provide you with the necessary advice or refer you to the right source.

The shaping of psychiatric care

Psychiatric care lumbered under the weight of ignorant disregard for thousands of years. Until very recent history, people with emotional or behaviour problems were simply cast aside by society and cruelly punished by authorities. Over the past century awareness and the need for a humane approach developed slowly and haphazardly. Today, thanks to modern technology, dynamic research and advanced therapeutic techniques, patients can enjoy dignified and effective remedies.

Dynamic psychiatric care

The acceleration of digital technology and the aspirations of modern society have led to acute awareness of the shortcomings of traditional treatment programs that originated only a few decades ago. Some facilities have not yet caught up with the latest techniques, but others are more dynamic and offer the latest, cutting edge options. Not only does it bring relief for primary patients, but the needs of codependents are also highlighted.

Simplifying psychiatric care

The terminology used to describe the professions and methods involving mental disorder treatment is diverse and can be confusing, as they often overlap. There is also a tendency to substitute the words in a random manner, whilst media platforms further confuse the issue with distorted or vague information. Without delving into complicated detail, the basic treatments culminate in psychiatry, medical care and psychology.

Psychiatrists are medical doctors who are also qualified to treat psychological issues. Their focus is usually on the treatment of chemical imbalances with prescription medication. Medical institutions like hospitals provide healing for patients who develop physical injury or require detoxification.

Psychologists, therapists and counselors concentrate on advising patients about emotional and behaviour dysfunctions and on treating it with thought modification. They aim at healing without medication, but they may add medication if a psychiatrist advises it.

Despite popular misperceptions, mental health professions spend just a fraction of their time on actual cases of insanity. Most patients suffer from emotional disabilities that have nothing to do with so-called madness. The majority of complaints centre on common behaviour and substance use disorders.

Choosing between psychiatry and psychology is a moot question. Some conditions require medical intervention, whilst others are best healed using psychology without medication. In some situations, the most effective remedy is a combination of both. Psychological therapy is usually the preferred long-term option, as chronic medication can introduce dependency problems and side effects. Medication also usually only suppresses the symptoms and do not heal the cause.

It is not critical which health profession you initially turn to for advice about mental or behaviour disorders. Professional health practitioners work in tandem and have sufficient resources to know when a patient requires referral for medical treatment, psychological treatment, specialist therapy, or combinations of it.
