What is ADHD?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a mental health disorder that affects children and adults. It is characterized by problems with paying attention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. ADHD is one of the most common mental disorders in children, and it can continue into adulthood.

There are three main types of ADHD:

  • Inattentive type: People with this type of ADHD have trouble paying attention. They may daydream, lose things, and be easily distracted.
  • Hyperactive type: People with this type of ADHD are always on the go. They may fidget, talk a lot, and have trouble sitting still.
  • Combined type: People with this type of ADHD have symptoms of both the inattentive and hyperactive types.

The exact cause of ADHD is unknown, but it is thought to be due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. ADHD is not caused by bad parenting or laziness.

There is no cure for ADHD, but there are treatments that can help manage the symptoms. Treatment may include medication, therapy, or a combination of both.

  • Medication: Stimulant medications are the most common type of medication used to treat ADHD. These medications help to improve focus and concentration.
  • Therapy: Therapy can help people with ADHD learn how to manage their symptoms and improve their self-esteem.
  • Lifestyle changes: There are also some lifestyle changes that can help people with ADHD, such as getting regular exercise and getting enough sleep.

If you think you or your child may have ADHD, it is important to see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment. With treatment, people with ADHD can live full and productive lives.
