Mental health awareness and acceptance has led to more people seeking help. One issue is Adult Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD or formerly also known as ADD). Some adults with ADHD get better as they age but others continue to have symptoms that interfere with everyday life. Have you ever wondered why you struggled to pay attention? Why you were always so disorganized, and forgetful? Were you ever called "lazy" just because you couldn't start or finish something even though you tried your hardest? It most likely wasn't you! These are just some of the symptoms we find in adults with undiagnosed ADHD.

Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Washington has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.
