A psychiatrist is a medical doctor (an M.D. or D.O.) who specializes in mental health, including substance use disorders. Psychiatrists are qualified to assess both the mental and physical aspects of psychological problems.

A psychologist is a scientist who studies the mind. Unless specified, you should assume the psychologist studies the human mind. A psychologist can be a researcher, who makes abstract studies of mental disorders and their treatments.

A mental health therapist provides a safe, non-judgmental space for clients to explore a range of issues that may be troubling them.

What is the main difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist?

Both psychologists and psychiatrists can provide psychotherapy. However, most psychiatrists treat patients primarily by prescribing medication, while psychologists mainly rely on providing talk and/or behavioral therapy.
