Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects both children and adults. It is characterized by symptoms such as inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity that interfere with daily functioning and development. ADHD is typically diagnosed in childhood and can persist into adulthood. 

Symptoms of ADHD include*:

  • Difficulty sustaining attention in daily tasks or activities

  • Difficulty managing tasks or activities

  • Avoiding tasks that require sustained mental effort

  • Frequently losing things

  • Forgetfulness in daily activities

  • Difficulty following instructions or finishing tasks

  • Difficulty remaining seated in appropriate situations

  • Interrupting or intruding on others' conversations or activities

*The severity and presentation of symptoms can vary widely between individuals.

ADHD can have significant negative effects on academic, occupational, and social functioning, and be difficult to manage and treat. Therapy and skill-building sessions can provide a supportive environment for individuals to express their feelings, work through challenges, and develop coping strategies. With appropriate treatment and support, many individuals with ADHD are able to manage their symptoms and achieve success in their personal and professional lives. 

It's important to note that there are different types of therapy that can be helpful for ADHD. The specific approach will depend on the individual's needs and goals and should be determined in consultation with MHRS’s admissions team.
