Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental health disorder that includes a combination of persistent problems, such as difficulty with attention, hyperactivity and impulsivity [2]. It is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood [1], usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasting into adulthood [3]. Symptoms of ADHD include inattention (not being able to stay focused), hyperactivity (excess movement that is not fitting to the setting) and impulsivity (hasty acts that occur in the moment without thought) [4]. Other symptoms may include restlessness, difficulty concentrating, poor organization skills, procrastination or forgetfulness. Treatment for ADHD typically involves medication, psychotherapy or both. Education about ADHD can also be helpful for managing symptoms [5].

ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It is a mental disorder that affects people of all ages, but is most commonly diagnosed in children and adolescents. People with ADHD have difficulty focusing their attention on tasks or activities, are easily distracted, and often act impulsively without thinking through the consequences of their actions. Symptoms can include restlessness, difficulty concentrating, trouble organizing tasks or activities, forgetfulness, fidgeting or squirming when seated for long periods of time, talking excessively and interrupting others during conversations. Treatment typically involves medication as well as behavioral therapy to help manage symptoms.
