Psychiatrists are the gatekeepers of our mental health: their job is to treat and identify mental illnesses, ranging anywhere from mild depression to catatonic schizophrenia. It takes years of school and residency to become a certified psychiatrist, so it’s not surprising that they tend to rack up lots of student debt. We’ve spent some time getting to know psychiatrists as we help them refinance their student loans and wanted to show our appreciation for all their hard work! Here’s a humorous day in their life:
