The difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist
Are you confused about who to go to, a psychologist or a psychiatrist?
Basically, both positions are equally helpful for someone with mental health problems. However, the two have differences.
Psychiatrists are medical professionals who focus on therapy and counseling, Rose said. They also have medical experience and can prescribe medicine.
While psychologists are more concerned with counseling services and other non-medical support. A psychologist can only provide counseling services and may not prescribe medication.
“Psychologists only give medicine, give advice, listen to the air of patients. Currently, psychologists can diagnose, give drugs and other medical procedures because they have received this training,” said Rose.
