Mental health provider

A mental health provider is a professional who provides one or more of a variety of mental health services. Such a person could be a psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist, social worker, licensed professional counselor or other professional. The term can be used for generality, however it came into major usage alongside the term mental health consumer as part of an effort in the mental health field to use more empowering terminology.
