Why is a Psychiatrist important?
Mental health is fundamental to overall health and productivity. It is the basis for successful contributions to family, community, and society. Throughout a person's lifespan, their mental health plays a key role in the development of thinking, learning, resilience, self-esteem, and communication skills. When one or more of these skills have been compromised, visiting a psychiatrist is typically a good idea. "Mental health problems are real and disabling conditions that are experienced by one in five Americans", according to the Surgeon General’s report on Mental Health: Culture, Race and Ethnicity.
