Psychiatry is a field of medical science dedicated to the diagnosis, prevention, management and treatment of mental, emotional and behavioural disorders. These disorders include maladaptations associated with a person’s mood, behaviour, perceptions and cognition. An initial psychiatric assessment typically involves the patient’s case history and a mental status examination. This may be followed by physical examinations and psychological tests. Some cases may require neuroimaging or other kinds of neurophysiological techniques. Each case is unique and will typically require a personalised treatment plan.
