Society can always use another psychiatrist! As our world gets more complex and stressful there is a great need for moe psychiatrists/psychologists. Personally, I prefer psychologists because they study more of human behavior and can't prescribe drugs (but can suggest a drug to the patient's GP) and a psychiatrist studies more medications (people are becoming much for questioning about the drugs they put in their body today) than human behavior. The bottom line is, don't just go into this profession for the money, but to really help people get well. Even this board has helped many people and they'll confide to us (because they don't know us) what is bothering them and really, psychiatrists/psychologist aren't much different.
