The need of proper diagnoses and identification of the psychiatric diseases is the first and foremost step in providing proper treatment to a patient. In most of the psychiatric illnesses, it is not possible for even an educated person to find out the psychiatric symptoms of a psychiatric patient. Therefore, a visit to a psychiatrist is a must to identify the illness as well as its severity. Another myth that is associated with mental illnesses is that there is no treatment to the mental problems and a doctor can only successfully treat the physical problems, not the mental problems.

Most of the patients feel uncomfortable discussing sexual problems even with doctors. But a frank discussion with the specialist can solve most of these problems. More than 90% of the sexual problems are psychological in origin and are known as psychosexual problems. So, most of the times, consulting a psychiatrist cures these problems.
