Information about ADHD

What is ADHD?

ADHD, or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, is a prevalent mental disorder affecting children. Its symptoms include inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, impacting various aspects of life. Left untreated, it can lead to diminished self-esteem and impaired social functioning. In adults, ADHD may result in reduced self-worth and heightened sensitivity to criticism. There are three main types: predominantly inattentive, predominantly hyperactive/impulsive, and combined presentation.
