Psychiatry is a branch of medicine that deals with the study and treatment of people suffering from a wide range of mental health conditions. At BMI The Manor, we offer private psychiatry treatments for those who live in Bedford, Huntingdon or St Neots.
Psychiatric treatment helps to give patients an understanding of their condition and delivers treatment for the management of, and in some instance’s recovery from, a mental illness.
In contrast to Psychology, Psychiatric treatment often involves the use of medication to manage symptoms and treat the patient.
