Psychiatric examination and need-based treatment
If you need medical treatment for a mental health problem, you will be directed to a GP or psychiatrist for diagnostic assessment and for drawing up a treatment plan. Together with you, they will look into what type of treatment you are likely to benefit from, the availability of treatment and the time when a treatment period could be arranged. The treatment may include medication and individual or group treatment sessions. Decision on the use of medication will be made together with you.
You may also need medical certificates or statements, for example because of inability to study or work, medical treatment, rehabilitation or some other reason. Our GPs and psychiatrists will look at this together with you and draw up any statements needed. They can also refer you to treatment elsewhere, such as a day hospital or a psychiatric unit, if that is seen as the place able to provide treatment that you will benefit most from.
