Mental Health Description of Providers

When seeking help, it can be confusing to understand the different types of mental health professionals and their specialties. Below is a brief description of the different types of mental health professionals and information about some of the Muslim mental health professionals in Southeastern Michigan.

 

Psychiatrists are trained physicians who have completed medical school and either have their MD (Doctor in Medicine) or a DO (Doctor in Osteopathic Medicine). Psychiatrists primarily prescribe and manage medication in order to help individuals manage mental health issues.

 

Psychologists may have completed their MA (Masters), Ph.D. (Doctor in Philosophy), or PsyD (Doctor in Psychology). They are trained in psychotherapy (“talk therapy”) and may work with individuals, couples, or families with mild or severe psychological issues.

 

Clinical Social Workers have completed an MSW (Masters of Social Work), with a focus on counseling. They provide psychotherapy to individuals, couples, or families. They may also work to solve social problems and connect clients with appropriate resources.

 

Counselors have completed their Master’s degree in counseling or a related field. Counselors provide psychotherapy to individuals, couples, or families on common life issues rather than mental illnesses.

 

Marriage and Family Therapists have either completed their Master’s degree, Doctoral degree, or Post-graduate clinical training with a focus on marriage and family. They provide psychotherapy within the context of the family environment.

 

Art Therapist are trained in both art and therapy and hold a master’s degree in art therapy. Their medium of therapy is through the use of artistic expression and exploration.
