Psychiatrists are medical professionals who help to diagnose and treat individuals with mental illness. There is a wide array of conditions (both short-term and chronic) that are considered mental illnesses—such as postpartum depression, generalized anxiety, phobias, and obsessive compulsive disorders, just to name a few.Psychiatrists are sometimes called to consult within the hospital when a mental condition impacts a medical problem or prevents someone from making a full recovery. Psychiatric consultations (both inpatient and outpatient) may involve counseling, medication or a combination of the two.
