Psychiatry is a medical speciality that focuses on diagnosing, preventing, and treating mental, emotional and behavioural disorders, taking into account the biological, genetic, and psychological aspects of the patient, as well as external factors.

Unlike the psychologist, the psychiatrist is a medical doctor who can prescribe medications and provide medical interventions, making them uniquely equipped to address both the biological and psychological aspects of mental health disorders.
