There are many different mental health professionals who can adequately treat depression in different ways: a psychiatrist is a medical doctor who can prescribe medications and other forms of treatment for depression and can also provide psychotherapy (which is a fancy term for talk therapy) that uses dialogue to improve the symptoms of depression. Other professionals included psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, who are all specialists in providing psychotherapy and can be extremely helpful in treating the depression.
