PhD in Mental Health Counseling

A PhD in mental health counseling is necessary to work as a psychiatrist. Someone with a doctorate in mental health counseling may be permitted to practice as a professional psychiatrist if they hold other Doctor of Medicine credentials. This occupation involves offering services to improve a patient’s emotional well being and to treat psychiatric illnesses. Holders of PhD (doctorate) degrees can also work as clinical social workers or clinical psychologists. Although their scope of practice may vary slightly, all deal with the same disorders, illnesses, issues, and conditions. Psychiatrists diagnose and treat emotional problems suffered by individuals, families, and couples. They have to counsel patients with a view to improving personal relationships as well as treating psychological disorders. Therefore, the scope of their practices often overlaps.
