""Somethings's GOT to give. I can't take this any more! No one understands. My spouse? No way. The last doctor said "more meds" and spent as much time with the computer as he did with me! My teenager is sad and going no where fast. I think the younger one might have some kind of Asperger's, ADD,OCD,ODD,PSTD or some alphabet soup salad that I'm just supposed to deal with. The counselors out there are just too young to understand what I'm going through. Certainly life wasn't meant to be like this.""

"As a board certified psychiatrist, I treat psychiatric conditions using the bio-psycho-social framework. Psychiatric illnesses may have biological causes, like thyroid problems, the effects of chemotherapy, strokes, or genetic predisposition. Psychiatric issues may also have psychological causes, such as the lack of coping skills, difficulty processing situations, or early life experiences. Finally, psychiatric disorders may have sociological explanations: overwhelming expectations of one's social setting, perhaps, or drastic changes in one's environment."

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Menlo Park 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 Menlo Park specialize in age groups (so check for Menlo Park child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Menlo Park). 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 Menlo Park, or mental health nurse practitioners, perform many of the same functions as a psychiatrist. This includes diagnosing mental illness and prescribing medication. Menlo Park 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.
