On careers.bps.org.uk it shows different areas of psychology (e.g. clinical, forensic), but can't you just be a psychologist? Instead of specifically being a forensic psychologist (e.g.). Is there a specific type of psychologist that specialises in mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, eating disorders, schizophrenia?

Mental health disorders would probably either be a clinical psychologist or counselling psychologist, or a forensic psychologist. These (and others) are protected titles, whereas 'psychologist' is not. Probably the main people calling themselves 'psychologists' would be those working in academia or in other areas of research and development

I think what you're referring to is most likely a clinical psychologist

Yes, most likely clinical. Forensic psychologists would also work with those experiencing mental health issues as well.
