What to Expect at Your First Psychiatrist Appointment

Your first psychiatrist appointment can be incedribly daunting at first, but it is not going to be as bad as you might expect. Your consultation will be in a calm environment where you will speak to your psychiatrist one on one. This is completly confidential and your psychiatrist will remain non-judgemental.

The first session will run for about 45 minutes, some patients may require up to an hour and you will be asked questions related to mood, anxiety, and psychosis. Keep in mind that you can also bring someone you trust along and asked that he or she be with you for the consult. You should share as much as you can with the psychiatrist but if you don't feel comfortable, this can be dealt with later on. You should, however, be completly honest so that an accurate diagnosis can be made. The more information you give, the easier it is for the psychiatrist to come up with an effective treatment plan.

If a diagnosis is made, the psychiatrist will identify what may have triggered the illness. This may include family history of mental ilness, previous trauma or abuse, use of alcohol or drugs, medical problems or previous mental health issues.

You and the psychiatrist will evaluate how the illness affects your everyday life and relationships, and the best course of action will be determined.
