Sadness, when becomes persistent, is not a normal feeling. Anger, when is uncontrollable, is not normal either. Trouble sleeping, when is persistent, needs to be addressed.
A psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in preventing, diagnosing, and treating mental. A psychiatrist's training starts with four years of medical school and is followed by a one-year internship and at least three years of specialized training as a psychiatric resident.
As a doctor, a psychiatrist is licensed to write prescriptions. Many mental disorders such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, or bipolar disorder can be treated effectively with specific drugs.
Seeing a Psychiatrist does not mean a person is "crazy", it means that as humans we can't cope with certain surroundings, daily life, or people.
If you are working with a psychiatrist, a lot of the treatment may be focused on medication management. Sometimes medication alone is enough to treat the mental illness. Sometimes a combination of medication and psychotherapy or counseling is needed. Counseling is what we normally call "Talk Therapy". It helps the patient analyze the cause of his/her actions and feelings and will help you create a different approach to your problems or feelings.
If that is the case, the psychiatrist may provide the psychotherapy, or the psychiatrist may refer you to a counselor or other type of mental health professional.
