"We are not born with the skills to handle life or our emotions. If we did not have people surrounding us as we grew who knew these skills and could teach us, then we did whatever we could to get through the emotion or situation we were faced with. This continued and evolved over time-maybe it changed into substance use, maybe into chronic dishonesty, or maybe we just tried to disappear into the background. Eventually these coping skills stopped working and we become desperate for the pain to stop. This is the perfect time a person can completely change their life and become who they were meant to be. THIS is the second chance!"

"Having difficulty finding a provider that meets your needs? Wanting your voice to be heard? I have been there in that seat asking for help just like you are. This is the reason I chose psychiatry as my specialty. I MUST know I am making a difference in the lives of others. With the lack of psychiatric providers and long waiting lists, this makes me work even harder. Seeing my patients progress and regain the ability to cope with daily life brings me joy and relief, just as it does you."

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Kentucky 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 Kentucky has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for Kentucky child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Kentucky). 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 (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

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