What Does a Psychiatrist Do?
A psychiatrist is a mental health professional with a background in medicine. Unlike therapists who study psychology, psychiatrists attend medical school. They provide medication management services for a range of patients. Some people only require psychiatric care for a brief period of time, while others need long-term solutions for their conditions.
Here are some examples of what a psychiatrist may do:
- Provide Medication Management for Short-Term or Long-Term Mental Health Treatment
- Work with a Therapist for a Comprehensive Mental Health Care Plan
- Write or Adjust Prescriptions for Psychiatric Medication
- Treat Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, Bipolar Disorder and Other Mood Disorders
- Discuss Alternatives for Medications When Issues Arise

Should I See a Therapist or Psychiatrist?

Many of our patients in Lake Orion, MI work with a combination of the two. The therapist and psychiatrist work closely with one another to provide a cohesive plan for mental health care. No matter what your needs may be, we will find a setup that works best for you.
