What is the difference between therapy and psychiatry?
Therapy and psychiatry can both play an important role in your mental health treatment plan. In therapy, licensed therapists work with you to discuss personal challenges and devise a personalized plan, but they aren't able to prescribe medication. Psychiatry is a medical specialty that monitors medication to treat mental health symptoms. Psychiatrists and nurse practitioners are licensed medical providers who specialize in mental health treatment and can provide psychiatric services and personalized medication management.
Can I receive therapy services from my prescriber?
While psychiatry sessions involve discussion, the focus is medication management. If you’re looking for mental health counseling, find out more about Talkspace Therapy.
