Psychiatry

Psychiatry is the medical specialty devoted to the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of mental disorders. These include various maladaptation related to mood, behaviour, cognition, and perceptions.

Psychiatry treats mental disorders, which are conventionally divided into three very general categories: mental illnesses, severe learning disabilities, and personality disorders. While the focus of psychiatry has changed little over time, the diagnostic and treatment processes have evolved dramatically and continue to do so. Since the late 20th century, the field of psychiatry has continued to become more biological and less conceptually isolated from other medical fields.

The field of psychiatry has many sub-specialties that include:

  • Addiction psychiatry
  • Brain Injury Medicine
  • Child and adolescent Psychiatry
  • Clinical neurophysiology
  • Consultation-liaison psychiatry, also known as psychosomatic medicine
  • Epilepsy
  • Forensic psychiatry
  • Geriatric psychiatry
  • Hospice and palliative medicine
  • Pain medicine
  • Sleep medicine
  • Biological psychiatry
  • Cognition diseases as in various forms of dementia
  • Community psychiatry
  • Cross-cultural psychiatry
  • Emergency psychiatry
  • Global Mental Health
  • Learning disability
  • Military psychiatry
  • Neurodevelopmental disorders
  • Neuropsychiatry
  • Social psychiatry
