A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who is licensed to write prescriptions. Many mental disorders can be treated effectively with medication, such as anxiety, depression, ADHD or bipolar disorder. Often a combination of medication and psychotherapy, or counseling, is needed. When that is the case, the psychiatrist may provide the psychotherapy, or the psychiatrist may refer you to a psychologist, counselor or other type of mental health professional.
