Mental Illness

What is your view on mental illness?

Also if I were a Doctor in Florida for Mental Health can I prescribe anything to clients that need it?

What do you mean by "anything"?

Also, there is a difference between psychiatrists (who are generally also MDs, and therefore are full-blown doctors) and psychiatrists (who may have doctorates, but are not usually MDs, and therefore cannot prescribe drugs (at least, not in Florida, though there's I think 2 states where they can if they consult with a psychiatrist).

What I mean by anything. Will be Holistic approach, vitamins supplements, remedies or any recommendations if I can not diagnose them

Well, couple things.

1, my post had an error: there is a difference between psychiatrists (who are MDs) and PSYCHOLOGISTS (who are usually not). Sorry about that.

2, only things which are restricted to "prescription only" require prescriptions. Like drugs and such. OTHER treatment regimens may be "prescribed", but it isn't really necessary to prescribe them, per se. If your primary care doc says "I'm prescribing you some damn exercise", you don't have to bring the Rx to the gym, y'know? So, generally, most "holistic"-type remedies (I have a rant on that concept, but I think it would be misplaced here at present) don't actually require a prescription. You could suggest them as a course of treatment, provided they're within your the bounds of reasonable practice (most things like vitamins would be).

While it's correct that there are two kinds of council for mental illness. you will find that within those two kind, they very wildly. A good psychiatrist or psychologist realizes that it's their job to listen and create a plan to achieve your personal goal. In that sense, they are much like a personal trainer at the gym. you tell them what's wrong, what you want. Then they create a plan to get you there.

If it feels like a trip to the doctors office when you meet with your psychiatrist then they probably suck. Their job isn't too diagnose, treat with drugs, then check back in x days, like a doctor. But It's to listen, plan, and achieve your goal. This can include drugs but unless you want to take those drugs for the rest of your life then it's not truly a solution... Psychiatry drugs are not nice drugs. They are mood altering f-up drugs.

In general I wholly agree.

I will say, though, that SOMETIMES drugs can be a helpful stopgap measure among the rest, and can be weaned off of.

No worries!

Can I ask for a broader context, though? Are you thinking about becoming one, or going to one?

If a person is not getting enough sleep, food, water or exercise,
that person might display behaviors that could be misconstrued as illness.

Always take of your basics first

I think its cause of depression.Mental illness is growing when a person get loose tempered or depressed in his life.

I'll bet heroin solves depression.

So does suicide. You'll never be depressed again.

Why would anyone kill themselves when they could do drugs?

No money.

Fair point. Get a job, to make money, to buy drugs.

Better yet, food stamps.

You can't buy good drugs with those.

Free drug>Expensive Drugs.

False.

Heroin is the way.

kfc laced with heroin.

I believe that most mental illnesses today are iatrogenic as a result of irresponsible prescriptions.

It is a legitimate medical illness based on genetics, other biological factors, and emotional factors. Certain genetic markers are currently being studied to see if there is any link to certain mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar, OCD, and PTSD. I have a theory on how PTSD forms, and I think that sustained emotional trauma over a period of time causes changes to the neurochemistry, and that changes the brain. Schizophrenia, bipolar, OCD, and PTSD have all been shown to cause changes to the brain that can be detected by certain types of imaging.
So you wanna know all about Sitara, huh? Knowledge is power, and you want knowledge of me? With great power comes great responsibility, so I hope you understand what you're getting yourself into. Don't say I didn't warn you.

While it's correct that there are two kinds of council for mental illness. you will find that within those two kind, they very wildly. A good psychiatrist or psychologist realizes that it's their job to listen and create a plan to achieve your personal goal. In that sense, they are much like a personal trainer at the gym. you tell them what's wrong, what you want. Then they create a plan to get you there.

If it feels like a trip to the doctors office when you meet with your psychiatrist then they probably suck. Their job isn't too diagnose, treat with drugs, then check back in x days, like a doctor. But It's to listen, plan, and achieve your goal. This can include drugs but unless you want to take those drugs for the rest of your life then it's not truly a solution... Psychiatry drugs are not nice drugs. They are mood altering f-up drugs.
I would be dead without my psychiatric medications. Literally dead.

Mental Illness

What is your view on mental illness?

Also if I were a Doctor in Florida for Mental Health can I prescribe anything to clients that need it?

What do you mean by "anything"?

Also, there is a difference between psychiatrists (who are generally also MDs, and therefore are full-blown doctors) and psychiatrists (who may have doctorates, but are not usually MDs, and therefore cannot prescribe drugs (at least, not in Florida, though there's I think 2 states where they can if they consult with a psychiatrist).

What I mean by anything. Will be Holistic approach, vitamins supplements, remedies or any recommendations if I can not diagnose them

Well, couple things.

1, my post had an error: there is a difference between psychiatrists (who are MDs) and PSYCHOLOGISTS (who are usually not). Sorry about that.

2, only things which are restricted to "prescription only" require prescriptions. Like drugs and such. OTHER treatment regimens may be "prescribed", but it isn't really necessary to prescribe them, per se. If your primary care doc says "I'm prescribing you some damn exercise", you don't have to bring the Rx to the gym, y'know? So, generally, most "holistic"-type remedies (I have a rant on that concept, but I think it would be misplaced here at present) don't actually require a prescription. You could suggest them as a course of treatment, provided they're within your the bounds of reasonable practice (most things like vitamins would be).

Very Helpful.

No worries!

Can I ask for a broader context, though? Are you thinking about becoming one, or going to one?

In process of becoming one.

At what stage in the process? High school? If you don't immediately know the difference between psychiatrist and psychologist....
