The Intricacies Of The Mind
Part of the reason why mental illnesses are difficult to treat has to do with the complex nature of the human mind. Every person has their own beliefs, ways of viewing the world, character traits, opinions and ways of reasoning things out. What may work for one, does not necessarily work for another.
That’s part of the reason why medications such as antipsychotics or antidepressants do not have the same response in every patient. All of these medications are working in the same way on every person’s brain, but their minds are not necessarily working in the same on the medications.
That’s also why psychiatry is not all about writing prescriptions and seeing the patient in a couple of weeks. For all the patients who do experience this kind of care, then it should be your responsibility to search for a new psychiatrist; one that cares for you on a human level.
Psychiatric patients need time, patience and understanding from their providers. Psychiatrists need time, patience and understanding from their patients. This is the common ground that must be arrived at, in order for the patient to fully benefit from treatment. When one party is underperforming, then the other party becomes effected negatively.
