What is ADHD?

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a prevalent condition among children and adults, to the point where it affects millions of people. The signs of ADHD manifest differently in each individual, but can include difficulty in focusing, increased levels of distractibility, hyperactivity and restlessness. It’s important to note that these signs aren’t solely present in youth; many adults continue to live with ADHD into their adulthood and may experience similar issues as they did growing up. Thankfully there are treatments available which can help those suffering from ADHD develop healthy strategies for managing their condition so that they can still maximize their productivity and enjoy life as much as possible.

 

According to National Institute of Mental Health, the lifetime prevalence of adolescents with ADHD is 8.7%.
