Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

A mental health condition categorized by persistent inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.

What is it?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental condition impacting daily functioning, relationships, self-esteem, and academic/professional tasks. 

ADHD begins in childhood, but can go undiagnosed into adulthood. It can be caused by many different factors, including genetics, neurobiology, and environment.

We understand the frustration and suffering that ADHD can cause and we’re here to help. Treatment can include a combination of therapy, lifestyle/wellness support, and medication. To learn more, schedule an informational call with one of our health navigators.
