Larry has always struggled with staying focused. When he was in school, sitting in lectures was virtually impossible. Now that he’s working full-time, it hasn’t gotten any better. While working his desk job, he finds himself zoned out, fidgeting with things around him, and jumping from one uncompleted task to the next.
His performance is being affected by his thoughts and he’s worried about getting reprimanded by his boss. He talked to a coworker about what’s going on and they advised him to seek out the help of a mental health professional. Larry agreed and soon realized that he has diagnosable ADHD. Now he’s getting the help and support he needs to thrive.
Psychiatrists can help people like Larry, as well as those suffering from other mental health disorders. They have the training and experience to diagnose, manage, and treat a wide range of concerns.
