Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a brain disorder that is typically characterized by a lack of impulse control, an inability to focus and pay attention, and hyperactivity. ADHD most commonly emerges in children and teens and can continue into adulthood. In fact, ADHD is the most common mental health disorder diagnosed in young people and sufferers often have trouble paying attention in school. ADHD must be diagnosed by a qualified clinician. In addition to medical interventions, seeing a mental health practitioner who specializes in the treatment of ADHD can help patients and their families better cope with many of the symptoms.

Being in a relationship where one partner has ADHD brings its own set of unique challenges.

In an ableist culture, people with ADHD often feel that we can’t keep it all together or measure up to others. Instead of feeling valued for our deep empathy, heightened capacity for emotions, creativity, and sense of humor, we are taught to compare ourselves to others, neglect our self-care, and place productivity above our well-being. Let’s focus on creating a life that aligns with what makes you special and how to balance your goals with your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.

If they do not exist, we will create them.
