Children are our future. As parents, we love them and want the best for them, but feel helpless sometimes in how to help them meet their mental health needs. Sometimes we become aware of a mean dialogue in our heads toward ourselves. This can cause pain and suffering, but it doesn’t have to be this way.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Alaska is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Alaska Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Alaska has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Alaska, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Alaska Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
