Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by persistent patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. It commonly presents in childhood and can significantly impact mental health, social interaction, academics, and overall well-being.

At Kimball Health Services, we recognize the unique challenges that those with ADHD may face in their daily lives. Our mental health service for ADHD patients provides comprehensive and compassionate care to address their specific needs.

What is ADHD?

ADHD is a behavioral disorder that affects behavior patterns in impacted people. In many cases, it manifests as restlessness and lack of concentration but can also involve a wider set of symptoms. 

  • Daydreaming
  • Forgets daily routines
  • Restlessness and fidgetiness
  • Talking too much
  • Frequent careless mistakes or taking unnecessary risks
  • Unable to resist temptation
  • Trouble taking turns
  • Difficulty getting along with others

These distinctive traits can present challenges across various aspects of a person’s life.

Low Self-Esteem: Challenges associated with ADHD can contribute to feelings of inadequacy and frustration, potentially leading to diminished self-esteem.

Anxiety and Depression: Coping with the demands of daily life can induce stress and, in some cases, contribute to anxiety and depression.

Strained Relationships: Difficulties in communication, listening, attention, following instructions, and impulse control can strain relationships with family, friends, and colleagues.

Without adequate support, those with ADHD may struggle with academic and career performance, social interactions, and emotional well-being.

ADHD is usually diagnosed during childhood and continues into adulthood. It is a lifelong condition. ADHD patients need a supportive approach to monitoring and medication to help manage their condition and live full lives.

Assessment and Diagnosis of ADHD

Accurate diagnosis for ADHD begins with a screening process. This involves comprehensive evaluations, considering developmental history, behavioral patterns, and associated challenges. 

This process is usually performed in collaboration with you and your family to help formulate a detailed picture of your unique needs and experiences.
