About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Seattle is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Seattle Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. 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 Seattle has many sub specialties including pediatric psychiatry (so check for Seattle child psychiatrists or adolescent psychiatrists in Seattle). 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 (certain states license Psychopharmacologists), psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Seattle, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have a MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a few years training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose some mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Seattle Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have some basic training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
