Psychiatrists in Indianapolis

Benjamin May, Psychiatrist  in Indianapolis
“I often work with people who are facing significant emotional distress - either due to unfortunate circumstances or as a result of troubling old patterns that keep resurfacing.

Indianapolis, Indiana 46204
“I specialize in the treatment of mood and anxiety disorders in adults and teens 16 and older. The foundation of my practice of psychiatry is careful assessment with ample time spent looking back early into a patient's history. My approach is best captured by this quote, "A psychiatric diagnosis is a milestone in someone's life. Done well, an accurate diagnosis is the beginning of an increased self- understanding and a launch to effective treatment and a better future. Done poorly it can be a lingering disaster." (Allen Frances, MD- Huffington Post 5/13).

Some psychiatric practitioners in Indianapolis specialize in age groups (so check for Indianapolis child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Indianapolis). 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 Indianapolis, or mental health nurses, specialize in nursing care for people with mental illness or mental distress. Indianapolis Psychiatric nurses receive training in psychological therapies (such as CBT), building therapeutic alliance with clients and dealing with challenging behavior.
