PSYCHIATRY

Psychiatry is the medical specialty devoted to the diagnosis, prevention, study, and treatment of mental disorders. These include various abnormalities related to mood, behaviour, cognition, and perceptions. As physicians, psychiatrists are able to prescribe medication and can also order or perform medical laboratory and psychological tests that provide a comprehensive profile of a patient s physical and mental state. Many years of education and clinical experience enable psychiatrists to evaluate medical and psychological data, make psychiatric and other medical diagnoses and recommend the most appropriate treatments.
