Psychiatry has been a science and study, of and for, the treatment of mental illness. Since the 1900s, a cultural and social stigma has solidified the fear of men and women who have been touched by the unpleasant management of the treatment of those with these illnesses. The way we teach the individuals how to cope with and care for the loved ones that have a mental illness, seems to have fallen short of the way we show those how to care for loved ones with diabetes or heart disease. The average person’s response when they are frightened by something in the twenty-first century is that all answers can now be found on the world wide web. Unfortunately, the web can be a source of misinformation, miscommunication, and all sorts of ludicrous opinions
Psychiatry is a medical field that deals with the diagnoses, prevention, and treatment of mental disorders. The FDA is constantly approving drugs for psychiatrists to use that are supposed to help with in their practice. For example, Michael Levin-Epstein, who wrote the article “A New Way to Deliver Psychiatric Meds: Drugs for ADHD and Major Depression Now Can Be Delivered with Skin Patches,” shows how pharmacotherapy is continually being advanced by new ideas and approaches. However, Psychiatric drugs are not always the answer. Prescriptions are not a good remedy when it comes to the overcoming of a mental illnesses, because there is not enough information regarding the effects of the drugs, pharmaceutical companies are driven by profits,

Psychiatry is a very flourishing, and rewarding career of choice. It has many upsCareer and downs. I have chosen this to be my career of choice because I like to help people with their problems, and look after them. I have been interested in this career choice ever since I realized that it is important to help others. I would enjoy a job in this career field for a variety of reasons. One reason would be that it pays quite well, however there will be many challenges to getting a job in this line of work. Some of those challenges include a lot of education, tons of money to pay for all of the schooling required, and the opportunity to actually obtain a job in this career field.
Psychiatry in a nutshell is the fundamental of how to treat mental illnesses, emotional disturbances and abnormal behavior. Psychology and psychiatry go hand in hand, meaning that they both coincide with mental health problems and emotional occurrences. Being a psychiatrist means that that someone would talk to patients and reason with them, about things they do in their life and how they can do them better. Becoming a psychiatrist to help young adults and adults come to terms with their illnesses and some people want to help them get through everyday life.
Pediatrics is an exciting and challenging field which I consider the only career choice for me. My interest in the discipline was reinforced during core pediatric clerkship rotation, when I was particularly attracted by the special bond between the pediatrician, the patient, and the parents, while working for the best outcome. I graduated from the Faculty of Medicine at Aleppo University in Syria with very good overall average. Then, I was accepted to the Pediatric Residency Program at Damascus University Children 's Hospital which was the only pediatric tertiary center in the country. Ultimately, in 2001 I became the youngest licensed pediatrician in Syria. Afterwards, I worked in primary, secondary, and tertiary centers, in Syria and Saudi Arabia until 2013. In 2014, I joined McMaster NICU as a clinical fellow, where I upgraded my technical neonatal skills, and became more familiar with the Canadian health system.
“To study the abnormal is the best way to study the normal” (William James). Psychiatrists never give up on any of their patients and always help anyone who asks for it. Psychiatrists have a never ending work schedule. Sometimes their patients call them even without an appointment because they are really struggling and they have to go talk to them. Psychiatrists also have to get at least eight years of school and an additional three or more years of an internship (“Career Information Center” 142- 43) . Psychiatrist must also have good communication skills. If they do not then their patient will feel like they do not care about them and they are not listening and the psychiatrists will be putting even more pain and pressure on them (Social Skills Training) . Even though psychiatrists must go through many years of school and training, all of their hard work is pays off knowing that they help people every day.
My interest in pursuing a doctorate degree in counseling psychology has been influenced by a combination of life experiences and an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. Though the path which has led me to this destination is complex, the journey has provided me with the clarity and insight necessary to understand human behavior from a holistic perspective. As I approach the completion of my masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I am faced with the unsettling realization that I have more questions than I do answers. This has fueled my innate desire and motivation to continue challenging myself by attaining a doctorate degree from the University of North Texas.
Interested in psychiatry and having taken courses from the NYU’s Department of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Studies, joined the Institute for Social and Psychiatric Initiatives (InSPIRES) at the Bellevue Hospital. Working with the InSPIRES not only gave me the opportunity to interact with patients, ranging from homeless to medically underrepresented patients, that I wouldn’t have been able to interact with at Mount Sinai, but also the opportunity to interact with psychiatric inpatients and outpatients diagnosed with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or schizoaffective disorder. Being able to shadow psychiatrists in the 18N unit and observe them interacting with their patients gave me a better sense of what being a doctor really meant, beyond the medical aspect. Doctors, in some ways, are mentors, or guides, for patients. Doctors not only physically treat patients, but also act as an emotional support when patients are feeling at their lowest.

My first semester in college, I took a Psychology 101 course and immediately knew I wanted to work in this field. I was drawn into different theories and how individual’s minds work. I always believed I was born to help others and guide them to success in life. I desire to help others because of my own personal struggles with mental illness. My unique perspective on mental illness allows me to empathize on a different level with individuals. I desire to give back and support to the community the way it was there for me during my dark times. I was lucky to have known from the start that psychology was my interest. I am excited to continue my education in the counseling field and become a future Clinical Mental Health Counselor.
I also took some sciences classes and they ended up being really interesting although they were a lot harder than the psychology classes. I believe Psychiatry isn't just about studying the mind and behavior; it is also an opportunity to help people which I plan to do as a career. I know becoming a psychiatrist isn’t something that can be accomplished easily. I will need to prepared to attend school for a very long time, have motivation, have grit and to have goals set up to which I can
I was first interested in psychiatry in high school we had a tour to a psychiatric hospital and we got to interview patients and observe them and I observed this one very sad men sitting in the yard not looking around very catatonic. Another men I watched indoors he was chasing a file that doesn’t exist these were really unhappy people who obviously and by that time I discovered that the worst kind of pain humans can suffer is not actually physical pain but emotional pain so that really deeply tight me into suffering from a lot of emotional pain psychiatry. I became interested in becoming a psychiatrist. Because I had a real interest in people, why they do what they do, why they think how they think, why they feel the way they feel. The other reason I want to study Psychology, because I wanted to help. I think this was partially down to a lot of my friends in school being upset and attempting suicide. I felt that I wished so much that people wouldn't get to such a point of sadness that they wanted their life to end. I wanted to help those people.
