So–what would it have been like? Does anybody know?
How about a more violent patient?

Does a Psychiatrist Just Prescibe Meds or Will They Also Counsel You?

Question by redhead.1962: Does a psychiatrist just prescibe meds or will they also counsel you?
I do feel I need to see someone whose job it is to prescribe and monitor antidepressants and my well being, but will the psychiatrist actually counsel me, spend time talking with me to learn about what “makes me tick” or will I have to also find someone else to help with “talk therapy”. I can’t afford multiple doctors and counselors, but I’m beginning to feel I do need to start talking with someone. My thoughts have begun to drift towards dying, not necessarily committing suicide, but not really caring if I live or die.

How Long Should Someone Be in Therapy?

Question by Ann: How long should someone be in therapy?
Generally speaking, how long should someone expect to need a psychologist for weekly “talk therapy” to treat depression while also taking medication?
I saw an unlicensed therapist at college clinic for 3 years – started going for an eating disorder, recovered from that (mostly), still went for mild depression – and stopped because 1) she left clinic 2) I didn’t think it was helping 3) I had insurance that would have covered a licensed psychologist/psychiatrist.

Several months later my depression went from mild to severe. I have started meds and therapy as a result. But this time therapy with a doctor, not grad student.
