What is ADHD?
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental condition, which means that it arises as our brains grow during childhood. The condition can affect people in many ways from work and relationships to sensory processing and brain fog.
ADHD Discovery call
A discovery call with one of our psychiatrists is a safe space for you to share why you believe you might have ADHD and to discuss your unique challenges and experiences.
You will discuss whether a comprehensive diagnostic assessment is advisable and address any questions or worries you might have. (20 mins)
