What is Mental Illness?
Mental illness is a clinically significant behaviour or psychological (to do with the mind) disorder that is associated with distress or disability. It is not just the way someone responds to a particular event nor is it limited to the way a person interacts with society.

A mental illness can continuously or intermittently (occasionally) affect our capacity for speech, language, mood, affect, thoughts, perceptions, insight, judgement, cognition (understanding) and volition (ability to make choices). It can limit our ability to function as society would normally expect of us and can put us and others at risk.
Mental illness is therefore, a broad term that covers problems ranging from minor to severe disorders.
Who is a Psychiatrist?
A ‘psychiatrist’ is a doctor who, after basic medical qualifications, receives further training and develops the expertise to become a ‘specialist’ in identifying symptoms of, and diagnosing and treating, mental illnesses. You may have been referred to a psychiatrist if your doctor feels you need specialist help.
See below under 'Consultants' for the psychiatrists who work at Practice 92.
Who is a Psychologist? 
A psychologist is a non-medical specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness, abnormal behaviour and psychiatric problems. They provide psychological evaluation, assessment, testing and treatment for people experiencing mental or emotional problems. The psychologist can also reduce the psychological distress suffered by people who are adjusting to a medical diagnosis, recovering from surgery or managing pain and chronic illness as well as improve treatment outcomes (for example recovery after a heart attack or surgery).
The psychologists who work at Practice 92 are:


What is a Psychotherapist?

A psychotherapist assists clients to increase their self-awareness and emotional growth.  They can enable clients to make sense of their personal history and family ties, significant past events and to notice repeating patterns.  Psychotherapy can assist in healing past hurts, overcoming the negative effects of trauma, deficit or loss.  It can improve intimate relationships, enable clients to navigate life transitions and negotiate developmental challenges.
