A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
A psychiatrist can provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, as well as prescribe medication. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
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.
