Though it may seem daunting to search for the right therapy provider, it is always worth it as you will finally have an answer to improving your mental wellbeing and daily life.

Below you will find more information on psychiatry, psychologists, and medication options.

How Psychopharmacologists Help

Psychopharmacologists are mental health professionals who are able to provide therapy, diagnosis, and prescribe medication. Some adults and adolescents may choose to combine psychiatric care with other mental health services for a more holistic approach to dealing with their mental illness.

At Luminous Vitality Behavioral Health, our board-certified psychiatrist has a deep understanding of psychiatric disorders and the medications that are best for treating different symptoms. Our clients can rest assured that Dr. Lee is backed by years of training and education in medication and treatment, and an understanding of ongoing research.

Not only can Dr. Lee prescribe necessary medicine, but he can also explain the effects on the brain and assess ongoing side effects.

Through a psychiatric evaluation, Dr. Lee can diagnose mental illness and work with the patient to provide a full range of treatment options and services, including medication management and different types of therapy.

Mental Health Conditions

Psychopharmacologists treat a full range of mental illnesses and problems, including mood disorders, substance abuse, emotional difficulties, anxiety, ADHD, and schizophrenia.

Below are some common mental health issues that a psychiatrist can help provide treatment for.

  • Substance abuse - addiction is affecting a large portion of the American population and can have an intense and lasting effect on family life and relationships with friends, a spouse, and children. A psychiatrist will be able to explore where the addiction may have come from and prescribe medicine to help alleviate the dangers of drug use.
  • Depression - many therapy types can help those with depression. For instance, a combination of medication from a board-certified psychiatrist and talk therapy from an experienced therapist can help get to the root cause of the depression and help in treating it through a variety of tools and medications.
  • Anxiety - this is also very common for patients of any age. Treating anxiety can be complex as there are different symptoms that can cause physical and mental distress. 
  • Mood Disorders -  this includes bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder which can have a big effect on behavioral health and family life. Effective treatment and a doctor who can diagnose patients are essential to improving wellbeing and relationships between partners and families.
  • Trauma - post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can have symptoms such as shell shock and flashbacks which can be debilitating. A doctor and psychiatrist will be able to provide treatment options for patients suffering from this type of illness.

Outpatient Mental Health Services

There are many different outpatient services available for mental and behavioral health problems.

New patients may not be familiar with how outpatient treatment works but it is more common than long stay in hospital care. For instance, therapists and psychologists who meet with their patients once a week are considered this type of care.

Psychologists and psychiatrists offer different mental health treatments, which can include medications and talk therapy to explore the origin of some mental issues or struggles.

There are also adolescent psychiatry services available for those who are younger but require treatment for their mental and behavioral health. Though not all psychiatrists or psychologists will be able to treat patients who are children or adolescents, this specialized care can be found in most counties, including Springfield.

New Patients

For new patients seeking help for their mental and behavioral health, finding the right psychiatry practice or therapists is the best first step.

Adults may benefit from our telepsychiatry services. This is a good option for those who may find themselves too busy to visit a hospital or office in person. Appointments are held virtually on secure video platforms, instead of on the phone, where adults may speak with therapists or psychiatrists about their mental health and even seek proper medication.

For new patients, the first appointment focuses on family and medical history to better understand what psychiatry services may be required. Subsequent appointments will allow patients to update our psychiatrist on their health and medication use.

It may be best to contact your insurance provider in order to learn what services are covered. Patients may opt to pay privately as well.
