When Should I Attend A Psychiatric Assessment?
There are many reasons why you may come to see a psychiatrist. Transitions in life can be stressful, and you may struggle to cope with these negative life events if you lack certain coping skills.
Often childhood bullying, neglect, abuse or trauma can be factors that limit you as an adult, and can make relationships more challenging, as you may be struggling with low self-worth and a lack of self confidence. You may also be struggling with an acute or chronic psychiatric disorder, and struggle day to day with your mental health and negative thinking styles.
You may be experiencing some shame, embarrassment or guilt about seeking help for your mental health. These feelings may be heightened by the depression or anxiety associated with your presenting issue, and by the stigma, and certain stereotypes, about mental health.
Please feel reassured that many people struggle with mental health, and that coming to see a consultant psychiatrist is like going to see any other medical consultant you may be referred to by your GP.
