Psychiatry vs. Psychology: What’s the Difference?

When you start thinking about getting mental health help, you might be wondering what kind of mental health professional will be the best fit for you. Depending on what you’re facing, psychiatrists might be your best option.

People often wonder what the difference is between a psychiatrist and a psychologist. They are two of the most common professionals in the mental health field. Here’s how they differ:

  • Psychologists receive specialized training and education to provide clients with counseling services, such as psychotherapy, narrative therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
  • Psychiatrists also receive specialized training and education but receive a medical degree instead. This allows them to diagnose, treat, and manage mental illnesses, often with psychiatric medication.

Both professionals understand the thoughts, feelings, and emotions that people experience and are able to treat mental illnesses and disorders. If you’re experiencing a mental disorder that could benefit from taking medication, working with a psychiatrist might be the best fit for you and your needs. In some cases, you might even work with both a psychologist and a psychiatrist.

Medication Management

When discussing the possibility of medication for your symptoms, you will need to talk to your psychiatrist about any current medications you are taking, as well as any allergies you may have. You also will need to provide them with your medical history before starting any new prescriptions. 

Once a medication has been chosen, your psychiatrist will inform you of how to properly take your medication and any potential side effects it may cause. It is important to take your medication safely and properly to ensure that you are experiencing the desired results. 

If your medication is not giving you the desired results, talk to your psychiatrist. They will be happy to prescribe a different medication that could be a better fit for you and your needs.
