Psychiatry Profile Image

Psychiatry

Psychiatry is devoted to the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of mental disorders. These include various maladaptations related to mood, behaviour, cognition, and perceptions.

Overview

Initial psychiatric assessment of a person typically begins with a case history and mental status examination. Physical examinations and psychological tests may be conducted.

Mental disorders are often diagnosed in accordance with clinical concepts listed in diagnostic manuals such as the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) and the widely used Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).

Treatment

The combined treatment of psychiatric medication and psychotherapy has become the most common mode of psychiatric treatment in current practice.

Treatment may be delivered on an inpatient or outpatient basis, depending on the severity of functional impairment.

Thank you for your question. I am a family doctor with special interest in Mental Health. In my experience, the chance of schizophrenia recovering without medications is less than 10% per year. And the chance drops with the duration of the condition. Example: the longer the co...

Some of the effects of hormone replacement therapy are not reversible. To illustrate, many trans men are happy with their voice deepening, and some will report a scratchiness in their throat soon after starting testosterone. The length of vocal cords changes and the timbre of the person's voice h...

Hi, I'm glad that you are trying to seek help. Anxiety is not an uncommon psychological condition which many people are reluctant to seek help for. In Singapore, there are GPs who have special interests in helping persons with various psychological conditions like anxiety, depres...

Thank you for sharing your problems. Chest pain and discomfort can be a very scary symptom. For most people, who are used to be in control of life; “suddenly” losing control over their own body can be extremely terrifying. Especially when we might have heard/seen...

Thank you for asking this question for the benefit of everyone. It sounds that you are having a tough time, and its double whammy when the treatment gives you unbearable side effects. Unfortunately in medicine, it is often times a zero sum game. Everything seems to have its ...

Hi, that is very serious, you should head to the nearest hospital or see a doctor immediately. Your condition needs to be reexamined again.

Hi, if you have already seen a lot of psychiatrists and been taking a lot of medications. You should try psychotherapy. Please see a qualified clinical psychologist.

When a person is overwhelmed by stress, he may become more irritable and be less patient towards individuals around him, especially to his loved ones and family members. When we do not feel good, we generally do not sleep well or rest well. All that will also affect our ability to t...
