Psychiatrist in Canberra Australia-Dr. Sunita D’Souza

Following the initial assessment, the psychiatrist will provide you with information, and will make a recommendation about what treatment might be most helpful to you. This depends on the type of mental health issues you are experiencing, their severity, your preferences where possible and what you already know works best for you. Medication may be recommended depending on your treatment plan.

Psychiatrists are the leaders of multidisciplinary health teams, formulating and determining management plans for patients and their families. They work with members of the team to deliver treatment to the patient, including education, lifestyle advice, medication,  social, occupational and psychological therapies. Adult psychiatrists may also work in a range of other roles, including other sub specialties.

Smiling Mind is a unique tool developed by psychologists and educators to help bring balance to your life.

The best way for parents and caregivers to support children learn to be mindful is to model it by learning about and practising

mindfulness themselves. Parents and caregivers already have a huge amount on their plate, but the good news is that engaging

with mindfulness not only benefits children, it also supports parents’ and caregivers’ wellbeing, and the wellbeing of the family as a whole.
