Psychiatry is the medical speciality of the study, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of mental disorders.
You will normally see a psychiatrist when you think you may have a psychiatric disorder or you are experiencing a psychological difficulty that will benefit from medication. If you’re having a tough time but it’s not severe enough to qualify as a psychiatric illness, or doesn’t need medication, then you may prefer to see a psychologist or psychotherapist.
Psychiatrists are medically trained professionals –they have completed medical school followed by specialist higher training in psychiatry. Following completion of their higher training they will go on to become Consultant grade, which usually takes at least 10 years. Because they have completed medical training they are able to prescribe medication, which psychologist and psychotherapists cannot.
Consultant psychiatrists are often the most highly trained mental health professionals you are likely to meet, and so they are sometimes the best person to go to for an expert diagnosis.
