If you are suffering from stress level anxiety then you should seek help. But then where should you go? How to know what type of doctor to talk to? Do you look for a psychiatrist or a psychologist? Psychiatrists and psychologists are two different types of doctor’s experienced and trained to help you deal with mental health issues and stress related issues. Psychiatrists are medical doctors (MDs) who graduate from medical school and have at least a year of medical internship in their kitty. They also have at least 3 years of residency in assessment and treatment of mental health disorders, while Psychologists have a doctoral degree in an area of psychology. Psychology is the study of the mind and human behavior. However, Psychologists are not medical doctors and can have a PhD in philosophy or a PsyD in clinical or counseling psychology. Because of their medical training, psychiatrists can prescribe medication but Psychologists cannot. Planning a baby is as stressful as carrying a baby in womb.
