Psychiatrists begin with a diagnosis first and then follow it up with treatment, be it medication, counselling, psychotherapy or electrotherapy. They often work with other occupational therapists and social workers for the rehabilitation of patients. Through counseling, psychotherapy, and if required through the use of electric convulsive therapy (ECT) or tranquillizers, psychiatrists work on the patients. Where required, they work on desensitizing patients, mainly through hypnosis.



Psychiatrists are of great demand in today's fast-paced life. The mental tension and stress arising from modern lifestyles are common among rich people. In these cases the role of a psychiatrist becomes vital. They are appointed in government andprivate hospitals, clinics andhealth institutes. They can also start private practice at home or by opening their own clinics. However, the earnings are more in private practice as compared to a job at any hospital/clinic.
Psychiatrists find employments in hospitals, nursing homes, polyclinic, health centers, medical colleges and research institutions. The pay-package varies from one organization to the other. In government hospitals Psychiatrists are offered the same salary as offered to other specialist doctors.
