ADD and ADHD
ADD and ADHD is a chronic condition that includes attention difficulty, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. More than 3 million US cases are diagnosed each year. Treatment can help, but this condition cannot be cured. With treatment, this mental health disorder can last for several years or be a lifelong condition.
ADHD often begins in childhood and can persist into adulthood. It may also contribute to low self-esteem, troubled relationships, difficulty at school and work, and in some cases can also cause the development of other mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression.
