James Fisch, Psychiatrist  in Chicago
“I believe there is more to therapy than cataloguing symptoms and selecting medications. There is a person behind those symptoms who has a complex personality, multiple needs and essential relationships, all needing to be understood. Real understanding is crucial and along with the medication and symptom relief is a powerful therapeutic tool.

Andrea Bacon, Psychiatrist  in Chicago
“I believe that good mental health is often neglected because of the stigma of seeking help, lack of knowledge or believing that if you just tried a little harder, everything would be fine. Many people struggle through life with excessive fear, sadness, worry or the inability to enjoy the good things in their life. You don't have to live like this. Sometimes these issues can be resolved with therapy alone. However, sometimes, these issues are biological disorders that need the judicious use of medication to be resolved.

Daniel Ross, Psychiatric Nurse  in Chicago
Verified by Psychology Today
Psychiatric Nurse, MSN, RN, PMHNP
“It is not uncommon to find ourselves somehow off track and disconnected from who we thought we were. Our relationships may seem stuck and deeply unsatisfying. We feel lost and unsure of our place in the world. This may be accompanied by feelings of depression, anxiety or as physical problems. It can be experienced as a deep alienation, sadness and suffering. When we are called to make a change and resist, it can cause havoc in our lives; this can happen whether the change is in the outer circumstances of our life, our inner attitude, our world view, or some combination.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

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

Chicago Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication or psychotropics. Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans and MRIs.

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

Nurses monitor for side effects and responses to medical treatments and offer information on meds so that clients can make informed choices about their use.
