What is ADHD?

Mayo Clinic explained: “Adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is a mental health disorder that includes a combination of persistent problems, such as difficulty paying attention, hyperactivity and impulsive behaviour.

“Adult ADHD can lead to unstable relationships, poor work or school performance, low self-esteem and other problems. Though it’s called adult ADHD, symptoms start in early childhood and continue into adulthood.

“In some cases, ADHD is not recognized or diagnosed until the person is an adult. Adult ADHD symptoms may not be as clear as ADHD symptoms in children.

“In adults, hyperactivity may decrease, but struggles with impulsiveness, restlessness and difficulty paying attention may continue. Treatment for adult ADHD is similar to treatment for childhood ADHD.

“Adult ADHD treatment includes medications, psychological counseling (psychotherapy) and treatment for any mental health conditions that occur along with ADHD.”
