Getting diagnosed with ADHD

The ADHD Foundation National Helpdesk receives many enquiries from adults who have discovered through a diagnosis later in life that they have ADHD. This answers many questions for them and for some it is a huge relief that they have been able to understand why their life has been the way it was. For others it is a time of sadness for the loss of potential not being able to have a diagnosis earlier in their lives.

Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) was founded in 1987 in response to the frustration and sense of isolation experienced by parents and their children with ADHD. At that time, one could turn to very few places for support or information. Many people seriously misunderstood ADHD. Many clinicians and educators knew little about the disability, and individuals with ADHD were often mistakenly labeled “a behavior problem,” “unmotivated,” or “not intelligent enough.”

Understanding ADHD – CHADD

The UK Adult ADHD Network (UKAAN) was established in March 2009 to provide support, education, research and training for mental health professionals working with adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). UKAAN was founded by a group of experienced mental health specialists who run clinical services for adults with ADHD within the National Health Service. The Network was established in response to UK guidelines from the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE, 2008) and the British Association for Psychopharmacology (Nutt et al., 2007) which for the first time gave evidence based guidance on the need to diagnose and treat ADHD in adults as well as in children; and in response to the relative lack of training.
