Symptoms and Treatments for Mental Disorders?

Medications can be used to treat mental conditions, but therapy during the psychiatric examination and during treatment is primarily used to determine the cause and type of mental illness. Psychotherapies can either change behaviors or thought patterns or help patients solve problems in specific ways.
