Psychiatrist

Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health problems, such as depression. They provide counseling and can prescribe medicines to treat mental illness.

Psychiatrists may further specialize in specific areas, such as addiction psychiatry, or in treating specific age groups, such as adolescents.

Psychiatrists can be board-certified through the Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, which is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
