Psychiatrists are the primary mental health-care givers. They assess and treat mental illnesses through a combination of psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, hospitalization, and medication. Psychotherapy involves regular discussions with patients about their problems; the psychiatrist helps them find solutions through changes in their behavioral patterns, the exploration of their past experiences, or group and family therapy sessions. Psychoanalysis involves long-term psychotherapy and counseling for patients. In many cases, medications are administered to correct chemical imbalances that cause emotional problems.

Types of Psychiatrists

There are a number of different specialty areas in psychiatry. Some different types of specialized psychiatrists include:

  • Addiction psychiatrist - Works with people suffering from addiction and substance abuse issues.

  • Adult psychiatrist - Works with adults experiencing mental illness or psychological distress.

  • Adolescent and child psychiatrist - Works with children and teens.
  • Forensic psychiatrist - Works in the courts and criminal justice system.

  • Geriatric psychiatrist - Works with elderly populations.

  • Neuropsychiatrist - Treats mental disorders associated with nervous system problems, brain diseases and brain injuries.

  • Organizational psychiatrist - Practices psychiatry in workplace and organizational settings.
