About the Psychiatric Program:

Psychiatry is defined as a branch of medicine that is focused on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in mental health. Their education and clinical training equip them to understand the complex relationship between emotional causes, medical illnesses, and the relationship between genetics and patterns in family histories.

Psychiatrists typically treat a variety of issues, including: Depression, Panic Disorder, PTSD, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Eating Disorders, Delusions, Hallucinations, Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, and Insomnia.

 

After interviewing a variety of psychiatrists for this specific program, Family Life Counseling will be working with a couple who have experience ranging from child-aged clients (3+) to geriatric clients.
