Adult ADHD assessment & treatment
It's been a busy year so far for enquiries for Adult ADHD assessment! It's been a pleasure assessing clients from very diverse backgrounds who turned out to have Adult ADHD. They're all thankfully on the road to recovery with the right medication and support.
I attended the UK Adult ADHD Network (UKAAN) conference in September 2019 at the Mermaid Conference and Events Centre in London.
According to Professor Philip Asherson, UKAAN President, the conference will celebrate 10 years of UKAAN. There's been a rapid advance in our understanding of ADHD across the lifespan, the availability of diagnostic services, and access to effective treatments. There's also been a stepped change in ADHD recognition by adult mental health services, reflected in a marked increase in the numbers of adults being diagnosed and treated for ADHD. Licensed drug treatments for Adult ADHD are now widely available in the UK and elsewhere for the first time, including both stimulant and non-stimulant medications, and recommendations from guideline groups such as the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). The importance of concurrent psychosocial treatments is also recognised, and mainstream psychological treatment services are also developing the understanding and skills required to manage mental health problems related to ADHD.
