A Psychiatric is a professional in the health care industry, who caters to mentally disabled and infirm people. They are directly supervised by mental health care professionals. They frequently work in hospitals, crisis place, schools and adverse situations etc.
They also participate in more formal training for mentally disabled people and undertake responsibilities for such people rather than working as aides. They collaborate with other health professionals and also optimize patient management in terms of shortage of hospital staff etc.
A master’s or a bachelor’s degree in Psychiatry is mandatory.
