Are you suffering from depression? Have you had bouts of anxiety? Do you struggle with sleeping disorders? Psychiatrists who specialize in mental health are seeing an increase in patient referrals. In fact, the number of psychiatrists who take an interest in these disorders has grown over 200% since 2016, according to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law.
With all the great things going on in this area, why are patients struggling with how to treat depression? Are they being prescribed antidepressants instead of cognitive behavioral therapy? Do we have a stigma associated with these disorders which are causing the public to become increasingly ill-informed and less likely to seek a psychiatrist? Join us on the 12th in this series of blog posts, where we reveal eight recent trends for psychiatrists near me to share on how they are working around these issues today.
The last thing I want to know is why the best psychiatrist in the area is not open every day, but that is not a bad thing. I want to be open when I’m ill – to speak with my own doctor and get my needs met. Not an endorsement but my support. To be as open and available as I can for you when you are sick. You deserve that same support.
