Amrutha Sarvani’s Answer

Psychology is the study of behavior and the mind. There are different types of psychology, such as cognitive, forensic, social, and developmental psychology. The 4 main areas of psychology are clinical psychology, cognitive psychology, behavioral psychology, and biopsychology.
A person with a condition that affects their mental health may benefit from assessment and treatment with a psychologist. Clinical psychologists are concerned with the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental disorders. While some clinical psychologists specialize in treating severe psychological disorders, such as schizophrenia and depression, many others may help people deal with personal issues, such as
divorce or the death of a loved one. Often times, clinical psychologists provide an opportunity to talk and think about things that are confusing or worrying, offering different ways of interpreting and understanding problems and situations.
