Is it possible to withdraw from the dispensary with the diagnosis "personality disorder"
Currently, patients with psychiatric diagnoses on the account do not put. In the Russian Federation is a consultative and medical assistance to the mentally ill absolutely for free. After treatment, patients take under the dynamic dispensary observation. What does it mean?
This means that the patient is recommended to visit a psychiatrist every 3-6 months, and receive recommendations for methods of further treatment. That is, the psychiatrist systematically reviewing the tactics of treatment and prescribes the appropriate drugs to maintain mental health.
Most often, the diagnosis of "personality disorder" I wish to remove patients who are planning to get a driver's licence or a weapon and apply for a position, for example, chauffeur and an armed guard.
If the patient for one or more years does not apply for advice to a mental health facility, his medical records after five years pass for storage in the archive. A certificate from psychoneurological dispensary may require the investigating authorities, the Prosecutor, the court and the personnel Department, if a citizen is arranged in the bodies of the Federal security service, the Ministry of internal Affairs or the Ministry of defence.
Theoretically withdraw from the dispensary dynamic observation is possible in five years. If after one year the psychiatrist completely abolished maintenance therapy, and for five years there was no recurrence of the disease, the patient is considered fully healthy and can get a certificate that will confirm it.
If necessary remove the diagnosis of "personality disorder" earlier, the patient goes to the regional psychiatric clinic. He set a date when you will run the Commission. Several experienced psychiatrists conducted the appropriate testing, ask a number of questions. Then the diagnosis can be removed.
It should be noted, this happens infrequently. And if the patient believes himself completely healthy, the Commission may give quite a different conclusion. Therefore, in practice, to remove the diagnosis of "personality disorder" ahead of time - a task difficult.
What to do?
To obtain the decision of the independent medical expert psychiatric Commission, you need to go to court. If on the basis of re-examination and testing reveals that you are absolutely healthy, a diagnosis of "personality disorder" will be removed and will be given a medical certificate confirming this.
Advice 2 : As diagnosed by a psychiatrist
In the diagnosis of mental illness is descriptive method. Using this diagnostic method the psychiatrist tries to discover the most important manifestations of mental illness and a differential diagnosis of other diseases.
Quite difficult to understand what is guided by a psychiatrist in diagnosis, if your knowledge about psychiatry as a science is limited. Psyche in Greek means "soul," and iatreia –"healing". From this it follows that the word "psychiatry" literally means treatment of the soul.

But it should be noted the fact that successful treatment of any disease is important, proper and timely diagnosis.

Diagnosis of mental illness
The main method of diagnosis used by the psychiatrist, is descriptive method. Using it, the psychiatrist aims to identify mental phenomena, which are relevant for the emergence, course, and manifestations of mental illness. The doctor describes the mental life of the patient, based on the inspection data, the patient observation and collection of information obtained in the course of the conversation of the doctor with the patient and his loved ones.
Unfortunately, the descriptive method depends on the experience and abilities of the psychiatrist and is quite subjective. By studying the information about the patient, the doctor may set an important diagnostic data such as time of disease onset, its clinical course, changes in the nature and behavior of the patient during the years of the disease. The doctor collects and logs information separately from words of the patient (subjective history), and separately according to the patient's relatives (objective history).
To exclude the subjective evaluation of the patient, the psychiatrist uses a special rating scale the main clinical and psychopathological characteristics. On this scale, the doctor can accurately determine the symptoms of the disease, avoiding their double interpretation, a qualitative and quantitative assessment of the deviation.
