Discuss with doctor: If you are having a mental health issue, it is important that you consult your primary care physician first in order to discuss and further evaluate your symptoms. If warranted, you may undergo a physical examination and lab testing. Depending on your presentation, your doctor can help you decide what type of mental health professional would be best for you. Hope this is helpful. All the best.
