What kind of patients do psychiatrists work with?

Do they work with naturally-born mentally challenged people? Or the people who became mentally challenged because they went through certain types of tragedies but were perfectly intelligent before? Thanks in advance.

It is the emotionally and mentally disturb that Psychiatrist have for patients. They also do study the retarded or mentally challenged to see how it can be prevented, develop ways for them to manage their way in the world (behavioral) and to maybe attempt to find a cure.
Here is a joke as to who exactly the Psychiatrist have for patients.
A Paranoid builds castle in the sky, the schizophrenic lives in it, and the Psychiatrist collects the rent.

We work with all kinds of people! Psychiatrists have generally been considered a middle ground between neurology and psychology. Psychiatrists can therefore see/counsel patients, prescribe medication, order laboratory tests, work in an academic or a research setting, and conduct physical examinations. There are more branches of psychiatry than most people realize. Like most doctors, most psychiatrists specialize in a specific area in mental health. In general, it is one of the most expansive fields of medicine today!

Alan, psychiatrists work with both groups of people you described. They also work with people who have organic brain disorders and those who have very common symptoms of depression or marital unhappiness. In truth, folks with every type of thought or behavioral problem that causes a person discomfort or pain can seek help from a psychiatrist.
BUT HERE’S THE DEAL: Psychiatrists are Medical Doctors and are the only mental heath professionals who can dispense DRUGS. Nearly everyone who sees a psychiatrist has their psychological problem treated CHEMICALLY.
In numerous studies done by insurance companies and universities, the primary purpose of a psychiatrist is to prescribe drugs. These studies have found that there is less “talking therapy” done by these MDs than by psychologists, MFCCs, or LCSWs. So if a person is interested in talking to a professional about strategies to improve their marriage, help their kids, or overcome some personal problem, a psychiatrist would not be their first choice. Other therapies should be tried before the brain is flooded with chemicals which will change the way you think, feel, and perceive.
