Q. What is the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist?

Psychiatrists are medical doctors who have completed medical school and training in psychiatry. They can prescribe medication. Psychologists, on the other hand, are not physicians, but they can diagnose mental health conditions and provide psychotherapy.

Q. Do I need both psychotherapy and psychiatry?

Most people benefit from both therapy and medication. The primary difference between psychotherapy and psychiatry is that the former aims to help address the current symptoms of a mental health problem, while the latter helps prevent the development of mental health problems in the future. Both are important, but it is best, to begin with, psychotherapy first. If you are not improving with therapy alone, then your therapist can refer you to a psychiatrist for medication.
