Psychiatry at Medical Offices of Manhattan will provide you with a safe and secure environment that is free from judgement. Therefore, the best way to prepare for psychiatric treatment is to be honest. The more honest you are about how you are feeling, the better your psychiatrist can tailor your treatment.
A mental health assessment is conducted prior to beginning psychiatric treatment to establish a baseline. You should be prepared to give a personal medical and social history including relevant lifestyle details, thoughts and moods, and any medications or supplements you have been taking. If you are able to please gather a family psychiatric history as sometimes these conditions can be passed onto future generations and may be important in your personal assessment.
