Below you will find various relationships to, and potential clinical treatment approaches for psychiatric issues.
It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine, treatment for "psychiatric issues" is rarely focused on the symptoms exclusively. Alternatively, a practitioner is looking at the factors that led to the development of "psychiatric issues" - i.e. the "cause(s)".
For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.
