I was referred to Talkiatry, what can I expect?

First, we’re happy you’re here. And we’re excited to help you take the next steps in your mental health journey.

The first step to getting care at Talkiatry is to take a short online assessment (it takes about 10 minutes). We’ll ask you a little about yourself and what type of care you’re looking for. Based on your answers, we’ll match you to a psychiatrist who fits your needs and takes your insurance.  

You’ll be able to view your matches and select a doctor shortly after your assessment is complete. The number of matches you have will depend on where you live and what your needs are. Once you’ve selected your psychiatrist, you’ll be able to book an appointment online—usually within days.  

At your first appointment, we’ll ask you what brings you in and spend some time going over your health history, goals for treatment, and other information that will help your psychiatrist get to know you and form a diagnosis and treatment plan. By the end of your first visit you should have a good idea of next steps, including your treatment plan and any follow-up appointments.  

Starting with a new psychiatrist can feel nerve-wracking, especially if you haven’t seen a psychiatrist before. We’re here to support you throughout your journey and your psychiatrist will be able to put your mind at ease and answer any questions you have—you’ll likely have a few!
