Mental health is as important as physical health!

Our mental health and wellbeing professionals are here to listen to you and offer you personalised and comprehensive care so that you can regain your balance.


When should you see a psychiatrist regarding your mental health?

Mental illnesses generally cause real psychological suffering. It is this suffering that most often leads to a consultation, sometimes first with a general practitioner and then, when necessary, with a psychiatrist. 

Many people prefer to deal with their difficulties themselves. But when these difficulties become too great, and the suffering takes over everything else, the call to a professional can allow one to move forward. 

Here are some signs that may indicate the need for counseling: 

  • Persistent sadness
  • Decreased self-esteem
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Feeling stuck in your life
  • Multiple conflicts with others
  • Sleep problems

Most importantly, if you feel that you need help, do not hesitate to seek professional help.


"The best help for a mental patient is to listen, not be judgmental and to understand that they are dealing with something that is overwhelming and that is not voluntary." - Dr. Elvira Herrería

What happens during a consultation with a psychiatrist at Turó Park Medical Clinic?

First of all, the first consultation is an initial contact between the psychiatrist and the patient. 

The doctor's objective is to establish a diagnosis based on a complete and comprehensive evaluation including a mental examination, a physical examination, laboratory tests and even medical imaging.

On the patient's side, this first session is also important because it will allow you to get to know the professional who will be taking care of you. It is essential that you feel at ease with the practitioner. Do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have and to express your concerns. 

Once a diagnosis has been made, the psychiatrist will treat the mental illness in coordination with the patient, including a range of possible treatments. Therefore, this treatment can take several forms: 

  • Medication
  • Psychotherapy
  • Biological treatments 

Lastly, depending on the method, consultations with the psychiatrist can last from 30 minutes to an hour, usually on a weekly basis.

Our answers to the most frequently asked questions about psychiatry

What is the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist?

Unlike a psychiatrist, a psychologist is not a doctor. A psychiatrist can therefore prescribe medication, which a psychologist cannot do.

Why go to a psychiatrist?

An unhappiness or long-lasting suffering is a sign that you should seek help. It is essential not to be left alone with your discomfort to prevent a situation from getting out of hand.

How to behave in front of a psychiatrist?

During the first appointment, be prepared to talk about yourself and the reasons why you are coming. Remember that if you want your therapist to know something, you must tell them.
