FAQ

Frequently asked questions

Around 20% of adults experience a mental health condition each year that impacts their well-being and daily functioning. Mental health disorders encompass a wide range – from mild anxiety or depression to severe conditions like bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. Thanks to ongoing research, our understanding of mental illnesses continues to grow, enabling better diagnosis, treatment, and management.

What Should I Expect at My First Appointment?

Prior to your initial psychiatric evaluation at our clinic, you’ll need:

  • A referral note from your primary care physician or another doctor
  • To complete a new patient registration form detailing your medical background

Plan for your first consultation to last approximately 45-60 minutes. This allows ample time for the psychiatrist to discuss your symptoms, history, and treatment goals.

How Much Do Psychiatric Services Cost With Insurance?

If you have a valid referral from your doctor, you can claim Medicare rebates to reduce your out-of-pocket costs. We advise confirming current rebate rates with Medicare, as these can change. Full payment is requested at the time of service.

Treatment plans are individualized based on your specific condition and circumstances after a thorough evaluation. Common evidence-based methods may include:

  • Psychotherapy (talk therapy) to explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors
  • Medication management with psychiatric drugs to alleviate symptoms
  • Lifestyle interventions such as improved sleep, diet, and exercise
  • Brain stimulation therapies like transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
  • Hospital admission for intensive treatment in acute cases

An integrated, multimodal approach combining different therapies is often most effective.

The key distinction lies in their medical training and credentials:

  • Psychiatrists are physicians who specialize in diagnosing and treating mental health disorders through medical, psychological, and social interventions. They can prescribe psychiatric medications.
  • Psychologists have an advanced degree in psychology and provide psychological counseling, psychotherapy, and behavioral therapies. However, they cannot prescribe medication or provide medical treatment.

Both play vital roles in mental healthcare, often working collaboratively.

The duration of psychiatric treatment can vary significantly depending on:

  • The specific mental health condition(s) being treated
  • The severity of symptoms
  • The treatment approach(s) utilized
  • How the individual responds to and progresses through therapy

Some conditions may require just a few months of targeted treatment. For chronic or severe disorders like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, etc., ongoing long-term management is often necessary to achieve symptom control and prevent relapse. Your psychiatrist will discuss expected treatment timelines during your initial consultation.

Protecting patient confidentiality is of utmost importance to our psychiatric practice. We fully comply with all safeguarding the privacy of your medical records and treatment information. All employees undergo extensive training regarding patient privacy policies and protocols. Your personal health details will never be shared or released without your explicit consent, except in very rare legal exceptions. You can feel secure in discussing your condition openly and honestly.

We offer a comprehensive range of psychology and psychiatry services tailored to individual needs. These include psychotherapy, counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychiatric evaluations, medication management, and more.
