Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in mental health. They diagnose and treat various mental health conditions using a combination of therapy, counseling, and, if necessary, medication.

Consider consulting a psychiatrist if you are experiencing persistent emotional or behavioral issues, such as anxiety, depression, mood swings, or difficulty coping with daily life.

Psychiatrists are medical doctors who can prescribe medication, while therapists and counselors provide talk therapy. Psychiatrists often work in collaboration with therapists to offer comprehensive care.
