Psychiatry

Like your physical body, your mind can undergo health issues. These can be as debilitating as any physical condition, and be accompanied by a lack of understanding as to the nature of what is taking place. The good news is that mental illnesses, like physical ones, can be treated medically.

Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialise in diagnosing and treating people with mental illness. They therefore have a deep understanding of the interplay between physical and mental health, and can provide the professional support you need to recover from disturbances to mental health. Psychiatrists help people with a range of mental health conditions such as schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders and addiction.

Psychiatric help is available at our clinic. For an appointment with an OPTIMIND psychiatrist on the Mornington Peninsula, simply click on the button below.

In a session, you will receive psychiatric assessment of your mental and physical symptoms. You psychiatrist may then arrive at a diagnosis, and work with you to create a personalised treatment and recovery management plan. Psychiatrists are qualified to provide psychological treatment, prescribe medications and carry out specialised therapeutic procedures.
