Psychiatry

What is it?

At The LightHouse we have a team of highly qualified, consultant psychiatrists who are medical doctors with specific training in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment of mental illnesses; they are licensed to prescribe medication based on an individual’s mental health needs. We also have psychiatrists with specialist training in child and adolescent psychiatry, addiction and other areas.
