Psychiatrist

Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health problems, such as depression. They provide counselling and can prescribe medicines to treat mental illness.

Psychiatrists may further specialize in specific areas, such as addiction psychiatry, or in treating specific age groups, such as adolescents.

Psychiatrists are certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
