Psychiatrist or Counselor?

There are many different ways to receive counseling for mental health issues. You may be wondering what makes each type of therapist different.

A psychiatrist like Dr. Tarunendu is part of the most highly trained group of mental health professionals. Psychiatrists are graduates of a medical school and have an MD degree, just like physicians or surgeons. You must have completed a medical internship for one year. Additionally, a residency in psychiatry for three years must be completed in order to practice. Psychiatrists are trained in the biological and chemical components of mental health. They know how medical conditions can cause or contribute to mental health disorders. Because of their advanced medical training, they are allowed to prescribe medications.

 

Counselors have obtained a Master’s degree in psychotherapy. They don’t prescribe medication and often focus on things like relationship issues, career development, and other stressors encountered in everyday life.
