Psychiatrists specialise in people’s mental health. Usually, psychiatrists specialise by disorders such as behavioural problems or personality disorders. Others specialise in people by age, such as children psychiatrists or adult psychiatrists. Psychiatrists can diagnose and treat patients, and create treatment programs or lead a group of mental health specialists by recommending treatment plans and programs for individual cases. The treatment includes both psychological treatment and medication when required.
