1. Education
Mental health providers can hold a number of job titles, each requiring a different amount of education and training. Psychiatrists hold medical degrees, while psychologists hold a doctorate degree. Some job titles require that the individual meet certain state and national guidelines, but there are no governing bodies to regulate titles such as "psychotherapist" and "therapist."

If you are interested in a career in therapy, it is important to understand the educational and training requirements of these careers. Learn more about education and training of psychotherapists.
