OCCUPATIONAL PSYCHIATRY

(return to services we provide page)

Occupational psychiatry is the amalgam of two fields of medicine: occupational medicine and psychiatry. Occupational medicine deals with the prevention and treatment of diseases and injuries occurring at work and attempts to maintain workers' health, prevent disease, and treat the results of occupational disease or accident. Psychiatry deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental and emotional disorders. Occupational psychiatrists have an interest and commitment to understanding work, career and profession as integral parts of a healthy life. This knowledge is applied to improving the emotional well-being of individuals feeling troubled at work for one reason or another.
