PSYCHIATRY

Psychiatrist – A Psychiatrist is a medical doctor who is an expert in mental health. They specialise in diagnosing and treating people with mental illnesses.

To become a psychiatrist in Australia or New Zealand, a doctor must train for at least another 6 years after finishing medical school. Their medical training means that they understand both physical illnesses and mental illnesses.

Just as cardiologists are doctors who specialise in diseases of the heart, and oncologists are doctors who specialise in treating cancer, psychiatrists are doctors who specialise in mental health.

Which conditions can psychiatrists help with?

Psychiatrists treat conditions such as:

  • Depression

  • Eating disorders (e.g. anorexia and bulimia)

  • Bipolar disorders

  • Schizophrenia

  • Alcohol, drug and gambling addictions

  • Anxiety disorders (e.g. panic attacks and phobias)

  • Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia

  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

  • Personality disorders

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
