Providing Psychiatrists for the most challenging cases

People requiring psychiatric rehabilitation may do so for a wide range of reasons. It could be related to a major trauma, event or injury or a chronic mental health disorder. Sometimes a client may experience a sudden decline in their mental health, episode of severe depression or breakdown, requiring urgent Psychiatric intervention.

Our experienced Psychiatrists will expertly review the situation, taking into consideration history, symptoms, behaviours and the challenges faced by the client. They will carry out a specialist assessment of the client’s mental state, which will include analysis of risk, and assessment of disorders such as PTSD, anxiety and depression. A psychiatric report will then be submitted containing recommendations for medication and other treatments or therapies, designed to assist your client as quickly as possible.

Understanding and efficiency

Our experience in providing both psychiatrists and psychologists for rehabilitation cases means we understand what you need for your client. You need quick action from a qualified professional who can provide assessment, recommendations and advice on medication.

We have an extensive register of Psychiatrists working in rehabilitation. Your dedicated client manager will take full details and work hard to provide a Psychiatrist in the timescales necessary. The report will also be supplied in a timely manner, so that rehabilitation plans can be implemented as quickly as possible.

Once part of the multi-disciplinary rehabilitation team, the Psychiatrist working with your client will be available to provide additional Psychiatric assessments and recommendations on an ongoing basis if necessary.

This is often an area of confusion. Understanding the difference between a Psychiatrist and a Psychologist can be crucial to securing the right professional for your case.

Psychologists are trained in human and emotional development. They use their extensive knowledge of human emotions, behaviour and mental health to assess the problems being experienced by their clients. Based on their expert assessment; conclusions, recommendations and treatment plans will be presented in a report as required. Psychologists use a range of assessment techniques including psychometric testing as well as varied therapeutic models in order to understand and improve the mental health and psychological well-being of clients.

Psychiatrists are medical doctors and as such are qualified to prescribe medication (such as anti-depressants) or in more extreme cases recommend hospitalisation, to help assess and manage the symptoms being experienced by the person concerned.

In some cases, it may not be immediately clear whether a Psychologist or a Psychiatrist is required. A complex case may even require both. Our extensive register of professionals includes both Psychologists and Psychiatrists, and our knowledgeable client team are on hand to give you the advice you need and supply the right type of professional. If you have any questions at all, just give us a call.

Our Psychological and Psychiatric provision includes neuropsychology, rehabilitation psychology, rehabilitation psychiatry and specialist educational rehabilitation psychology. If your case has some complex and niche elements, we’ll seek out the professional with the right skills to support your client.

At Psychology Direct we work with Solicitors, Case Managers and Insurance companies on challenging, complex cases. We understand the challenges of the client in the centre of your case and the need to find the Psychologist or Psychiatrist with the right areas of experience and knowledge, without delay.

Our extensive register means we’ll be able to find the right professional for your case, ideally within 24 hours, . You can be reassured your dedicated client manager will be on the case as soon as your enquiry comes in, using their in-depth knowledge of our register to secure you the right professional.
