You are right. And psychologists do not prescribe medication. A physician who has done a residency in psychiatry and holds a valid medical license does prescribe medication for mental illness. The protocols about psychiatric emergencies are usually written by psychiatrists and these same psychiatrists sit on the medical boards which license EMT.
I am glad to help explain how this aspect of EMS to you. Any other things about EMS you are unfamiliar with?
Ahh, so we resort to cheap pot shots now instead of logic when someone asks you to explain a jumbled post. I am with you but will not sink to that level. Cheers...
