CTS Psychiatrists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with mental health disorders such as:
- bipolar disorder
- eating disorders
Psychiatric disorders can be caused by physical illnesses and many patients with mental health disorders are at greater risk of physical illness. Psychiatrists are skilled in recognizing the symptoms in order to evaluate, assess risk and draw up treatment plans, that may include prescribing medication.
Our Psychiatrists have exceptional knowledge of anatomy, psychology, physiology, pharmacology and mental health law, as well as perception of the social factors that influence mental health. They work directly with patients suffering from a range of mental health problems and provide a good standard of practice and care. Patients are assessed by reviewing their mental and physical health, thoughts and past health issues, as well as any potential risk factors. They decide on appropriate psychiatric treatment plans, which include a mix of psychological, medical and social interventions in conjunction with other health professionals and prescribe medication when necessary
