How Do Psychiatric Disorders Like ADHD, Depression, And Anxiety Present?

When treating psychiatric disorders, psychiatric providers understand that many times it’s not an “either-or” scenario. For example, if a patient has ADHD or ADD, the provider needs to keep their differential diagnosis open to include other possible ancillary conditions. ODD, Depression, Anxiety, and even Bipolar can occur concurrently with ADHD. In addition, social skills, personal safety, personal hygiene, and learning are commonly affected. Treating the whole patient is important to all of our psychiatric providers. Psychologists (with psychological testing), therapists, and counselors, all work together to help overcome the obstacles that families and children are facing.
