Psychiatrists are M.D.'s who have been to medical school and then specialize in Psych. They can prescribe prescription medications. Just a personal opinion - they know how to treat the symptoms with prescriptions, but don't know much about curing the root of the illness unless they specialize in orthomolecular psychiatry (nutrition, diet).
Psychologists are the talk therapy kind of people. You will probably need at least a Masters to be able to get a job doing this.
I have a good friend who has her B.S. in psychology, she works for the state determining eligibility for psychiatric patients on government assistance - I'm guessing - $20,000 - $25,000 per year.
