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

Some psychiatric practitioners in Sterling specialize in age groups (so check for Sterling child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Sterling). 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 Sterling, or mental health nurses, specialize in nursing care for people with mental illness or mental distress. Sterling 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.
