Psychiatric Assessment

We are here to help

Psychiatric Assessment

With specific training in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental illnesses, our team of highly qualified psychiatrists are specialized medical doctors with expertise in a wide range of illnesses that affect the mind and brain. Psychiatrists are authorized to assess both the mental and physical aspects of psychological problems, assess risk factors in relation to the difficulties and may prescribe medications depending on each individual’s needs.

Psychiatrists work in multidisciplinary teams with clinical psychologists, counsellors and other professionals to provide a comprehensive care plan that addresses all your mental health needs.

Psychiatrists are also trained to identify physical ailments that can have a negative impact on mental or emotional health and vice versa, to help people with medical conditions navigate the mental and emotional challenges that sometimes accompany them, especially chronic conditions such as chronic pain, hormonal conditions, and neurological disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis, among many others.

Medication is an important part of treatment for many patients with mental health challenges. Our experienced psychiatrists monitor all patients closely to ensure that they are taking the right medications in the right amount – and only when it is absolutely necessary. Continued monitoring is necessary to ensure that when it is the right time to stop your medication, this is done under expert advice and support.
