Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
ADHD is highly treatable and manageable.
ADHD is prevalent in all age groups with approximately eight per cent of children, six per cent of adolescents, and four per cent of adults experiencing symptoms.
Young adulthood is a pivotal life transition point with increasingly less support from parents and teachers. ADHD can be triggered by these transitions, and can negatively impact education, career, finances and relationships if not managed effectively.
Untreated ADHD can impact people with ADHD through: Increased likelihood of car accidents, high-risk sexual behaviour (STD’s or unwanted pregnancy), incurring high debt, high absenteeism at school or work, etc.
ADHD is a neurological, biological, developmental disorder that often runs in families.
