The psychiatrists listed here have identified their interest in elder therapy in New York or help for New York elderly people in therapy. Psychiatrists who work with elders (for instance, elderly parents, elderly women or even elderly abuse) handle a broad range of issues especially as they relate to caring for the elderly and homes for the elderly in New York. Elderly depression is a common problem that can be helped by therapy for elderly people. Psychiatrists who work with the elderly are sometimes referred to as New York geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

New York Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication or psychotropics. Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

Some psychiatric practitioners in New York specialize in age groups (so check for New York child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in New York). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

Other related specialties include psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics and neuroimaging.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in New York, or mental health nurse practitioners, perform many of the same functions as a psychiatrist. This includes diagnosing mental illness and prescribing medication. New York Psychiatric nurse practitioners also act as a therapist, helping patients with depression, anxiety and suicidal individuals, as well as other conditions that can be remedied with counseling.

Nurses monitor for side effects and responses to medical treatments and offer information on medications so that clients can make informed choices about their use.
