As so eloquently verbalized by an anonymous speaker during a NAMI conference, "My medications didn't teach me how to swim. They just raised the floor of the pool so my toes could touch the bottom and I wouldn't sink again." It is my belief that with the appropriate psychotherapeutic interventions no one has to go through life feeling as if they are drowning. An individual's life should not be defined by their diagnosis. Instead they should be able to find experienced, compassionate, care in order to live the life they were given to it's fullest extent.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Shirley 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 Shirley 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 Shirley, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified.
