Although both serve important roles in treating mental health conditions, their qualifications and training are different.
Both may provide evaluation and psychotherapy, but psychiatric providers are licensed to prescribe medications and other biologically-based treatments such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. An addition to psychiatrists and psychologists, other mental health-related professions include Social Workers, Nurse Practitioners, Licensed Counselors, and other groups. Your care at Neighborhood will be with both a Psychiatrist, with full Medical School training as a Physician, and a Nurse Practitioner or Physician's Assistant. We use a true team model, with weekly supervision meetings and collaboration to ensure the most thoughtful care possible.
A psychiatrist is a trained physician who has completed 4 years of medical school. He or she then continues intensive residency training in psychiatry for an additional 4 years, often completing specialized training after that, as well. Because of this training, he or she is licensed to both prescribe medication and practice psychotherapy. Psychiatrists may work in any clinical setting, and often oversee the care provided by those working with them, including other professionals. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Psychiatric nurse practitioners (PNP) work in primary care facilities, private practice, outpatient mental health clinics, as well as in hospitals and community health centers. They evaluate and provide care for patients who have anything from psychiatric disorders, medical mental conditions to substance abuse problems. In order to become a nurse practitioner you must obtain at least six years of college education including a nursing and master's degree.
