Psychiatry is a medical speciality that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. Psychiatrists
can use psychotherapy and psychotropic drugs as part of their treatment. Psychology is the study of mind and behaviours. Psychologists have a doctoral degree in psychology and are qualified to do counselling and psychotherapy. Mental disorders arise from biological and environmental factors and vary from person to person. They are related to maladaptation of mood, behaviour, perception and cognition. Mental issues are often debilitating and stigmatized socially. Mind disorders are disabling not only to the patients but also their families. Most mental disorders can be treated with pharmacological and psychological interventions to enable subjects to function properly. But a combination of both works best for the patient.
