Research finds that some children with ADHD have it as adults

Tuesday, March 5, 2013 - 12:48am

A new study finds people diagnosed with ADHD in childhood don't grow out of their mental health problems.

The study of more than 200 adults who had ADHD as children, found that 57% had other psychiatric conditions such as depression and anxiety.

Not doing well in school can be depressing and that's why researchers think that they're growing up with these other problems.

The bottom line is that parents should get your child diagnosed and treated early.
