A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.

Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
