The psychiatrist: How many psychiatrists in France?

There are approximately 13, 000 psychiatrists in France (2001 figure), and 6, 600 liberal psychiatrists (in the office) in 2006. Psychiatrists are expected to experience one of the largest decreases in numbers to come in the medical world. Indeed, a report from the Ministry of Health in 2009, mentions a decline of more than 15% in the number of psychiatrists, between 2006 and 2015. However, note that France is one of the European countries to have the most large number of psychiatrists compared to the number of inhabitants.

Why consult a psychiatrist?


The mere prolonged perception of this need is enough to justify a consultation with a psychiatrist. Also, the following elements, when they are registered for an extended duration, can motivate a psychological care:
> Difficulties of management of the daily life, or management of the stress,
> Difficulties in contact with the other,
> Difficult and heavy life story in everyday life,
> Malaise or lack of confidence,
> Sleep disorders, anxiety, inappropriate fears,
> Abrupt or periodic mood changes,
> Ideas or bizarre behaviors, perceived or not as such by the entourage,
> Inappropriate behaviors in society,
> Psychiatric illnesses: depression, manic-depressive psychosis (bipolar disorder), schizophrenia, perversions, obsessive-compulsive disorder, etc.

Each psychiatrist is different in how they approach the patient, help him, and treat him. Depending on the needs and affinities, it is therefore possible to find shoes to his feet. If you feel concerned, talk to your doctor.
