Clinical psychologists are mental health professionals with four to six additional years of doctoral-level schooling beyond a bachelors’ degree. They assist mentally and emotionally distressed clients through a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. Unlike psychiatrists, who must attend medical school as part of their training, clinical psychologists cannot legally prescribe medications.
