What is a Psychiatrist?

Psychiatrists diagnose, prevent and treat mental illness as related to mood, behavior, cognition and perceptions. Psychiatric assessments help psychiatrists determine what kind of treatment is needed for the patient. Oftentimes, a combination of psychiatric medication and psychotherapy help to treat the patient with mental illness. Psychiatrists have excellent communication skills and a high degree of emotional intelligence.
