Ozark Center psychiatrists specialize in diagnosing, treating and preventing mental and emotional issues. Psychiatrists practice psychotherapy, perform mental health evaluations and prescribe medications. While many mental health issues respond well to treatments that do not require medications, psychiatrists are specially trained in the relationship between mental and physical health and can help with those issues that require medication in addition to therapy.
While our psychiatrists can treat most mental health issues, they most commonly see:
- Severe depression
- Bipolar disorder
- Psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia
