Psychiatric Diagnosis

A psychiatric diagnosis is a medical term used to explain patterns of experiences or actions that may be triggering pain and/or be seen as tough to understand. Psychiatric diagnoses are a form of ‘short-hand’ for these experiences, and may comprise tags such as depression, anxiety disorder, OCD, schizophrenia, psychosis, bipolar disorder, personality disorder, and others. Diagnosis is usually done by physical investigations such as blood tests, X-rays and so on. However, in adult mental health there are no physical tests for psychiatric diagnoses, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and personality disorder.
