Psychiatrists and Clinical Psychologists have all been professionally trained to help people with psychological distress or mental illness. Although there are differences in the two fields, psychiatrists and psychologists often work together in the treatment of patients. A psychologist is not able to write prescriptions, but may recommended a patient be seen by a fellow psychiatrist in order to receive medications.
