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 prescribes and monitors medication to treat mental health symptoms. Psychiatrists and psychiatric providers are licensed medical providers who specialize in mental health treatment and can provide psychiatric care services and personalized medication management.

How do I get matched with a therapist?
