Healthcare conference


Psychiatry is a medical specialty that focuses on researching, understanding, diagnosing, and treating brain diseases and mental and behavioral disorders. Psychiatrists diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions, including Alzheimer's, anxiety, and autism, as well as mood disorders, Munchausen syndrome, psychosis, and suicidality. Psychiatrists are trained as physicians to recognize the numerous ways in which general physiologic processes and pathologies can influence mental functioning—and vice versa.
