Psychiatrist, with their medical degrees, have the unique ability to prescribe medication and manage the medical aspects of mental health treatment, a role that therapists do not hold. Their expertise is crucial in treating various mental health conditions and disorders.

Although many psychologists hold doctoral degrees, they are not medical doctors. They focus on treating mental health issues primarily through talk therapy and other non-medical interventions. Psychiatrists, however, are medical doctors who specialize in mental health care, using medication as a key part of treatment, along with providing talk therapy and other supportive treatments. This distinction allows for a comprehensive approach to treating mental health conditions and disorders, with psychiatrists often managing medication and more complex medical aspects of mental health.
