What happens during psychiatric services?

The specifics of your psychiatric care at Health and Wellness Medical Services depend on your unique needs. You meet with the psychiatric professionals at the office or through their telemedicine services.

The psychiatrist does a comprehensive evaluation, assessing your emotional, cognitive, and physical well-being. During this evaluation, your provider may perform various psychological tests to better understand your emotional state and determine the right diagnosis.

They may also request bloodwork to rule out a medical condition that might explain your emotional or mood changes.

After your evaluation, your provider talks to you about their findings and makes recommendations for treatment, which might include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Talk support
  • Individual psychotherapy
  • Family therapy

Depending on your diagnosis and symptoms, you may need psychiatric services for a short period of time. However, for chronic mental health conditions, you may benefit from ongoing care, monitoring, and treatment.
