Neuropsychiatry Q & A
What is neuropsychiatry?
Neuropsychiatry combines neurology and psychiatry to diagnose and treat mental health disorders caused by brain injuries or diseases.
While many mental health issues stem from chemical or hormonal imbalances, it's also possible for tumors, degenerative brain diseases, and injuries like concussions to trigger mental health symptoms.
What are some common neuropsychiatric disorders?
Many neurological conditions can cause psychiatric symptoms. For example, well-known Alzheimer's disease symptoms include mood changes, anxiety, and depression. Any disease that causes brain cell degeneration can affect your mental health and cognitive ability, including:
- Epilepsy and seizure disorders
- Parkinson's disease
- Brain tumors
Additionally, people who’ve had multiple concussions or brain injuries often develop psychiatric symptoms such as mood changes, increased irritability, and uncontrollable anger.
What is included in neuropsychiatry?
At Bromley Neurology PC, the team offers personalized neuropsychiatry services to diagnose and treat disease. Your doctor begins with a neuropsychiatric evaluation. This includes physical and mental health screenings that allow your doctor to assess your symptoms and condition.
The team also uses diagnostic tests, including lab tests, MRIs, CT scans, and an electroencephalogram (EEG). They might also complete psychiatric testing to evaluate your cognitive function.
Once your physician understands your condition, they create a patient-focused treatment plan to address the underlying neurological disease and relieve your symptoms. Depending on your needs, your neuropsychiatric treatment plan could include:
- Infusion therapy
- Physical or occupational therapy
- Nutrition and supplement suggestions
- Deep brain therapy
- Alternative or complementary therapies
The team at Bromley Neurology PC is committed to enhancing your health and quality of life. Their compassionate, patient-focused approach ensures you get the best possible neuropsychiatric treatment.
When should I seek neuropsychiatry services?
Neuropsychiatric symptoms often emerge gradually, and you might not notice a change in your mood, behavior, or cognitive function right away. However, you should make an appointment with the experts at Bromley Neurology PC if you or a loved one notice symptoms such as:
- Increased irritability
- Abnormal mood changes
- Uncontrollable anger
- Memory loss
- Reduced cognitive function
It may be tempting to brush off these changes as the result of a bad day or fatigue, but if they persist or interfere with your ability to function in your day-to-day life, it's time to get help.
