Psychiatry is a medical field concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental health conditions.
A medical doctor with special training in psychiatry is called a psychiatrist. Unlike other mental health professionals,
such as psychologists and counselors, psychiatrists must be medically qualified doctors who have chosen to specialize in
psychiatry. This means they can prescribe medication as well as recommend other forms of treatment.
