Navigating the transition from childhood ADHD to adult ADHD

There’s a misconception that the treatment of the neurodevelopmental disorder Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) stops in adolescence. A large body of evidence shows that ADHD can have serious consequences in adulthood too.

Adult ADHD can be treated and managed effectively with pharmacological, i.e. ADHD medication, and non-pharmacological interventions, e.g. balanced diet, exercise, healthy daily routine, relaxation, life-coaching.

Please have a read of the helpful and revealing BJPsychOpen Editorial of 6th April 2020 below. It’s titled “Regional analysis of UK primary care prescribing and adult service referrals for young people with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder: from little to very little” and was written by Samuele Cortese, Professor of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry at University of Southampton and a member of the European ADHD Guidelines group (EAGG). He highlights the growing problems of ADHD transition and its effective treatment from adolescence to adulthood.
