About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Lake County is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Some psychiatric practitioners in Lake County specialize in age groups (so check for Lake County child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Lake County). Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists or geropsychiatrists.

Other related specialties include psychopharmacology (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics and neuroimaging.

Psychiatric nurses in Lake County, or mental health nurses, specialize in nursing care for people with mental illness or mental distress. Lake County Psychiatric nurses receive training in psychological therapies (such as CBT), building therapeutic alliance with clients and dealing with challenging behavior. Importantly, they are trained to administer psychiatric medication (or 'psychiatric meds') and, in very limited ways, to prescribe meds.
