Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a behavioral disorder that affects your focus and attention, as well as your ability to stick to a routine and complete tasks.

ADHD impacts work, social interactions, and personal relationships. Because ADHD can lower your quality of life, it’s important to seek mental health care if ADHD symptoms are present.

ADHD leads to a wide variety of signs, symptoms, and behaviors that vary from minor and occasional to everyday occurrences. If you have ADHD, you may experience:

• Talking excessively
• Difficulty paying attention
• Being unable to stick to a schedule
• Being forgetful and not following through
• Making decisions without considering risk
• Being unable to hold still or frequent fidgeting
• Losing essential items regularly, such as car keys
• Failing to follow instructions or finish tasks at work
• Having problems staying organized or completing tasks in sequence

Depending on your needs, treating ADHD may also include a combination of any of the following:

• Learning to break down large tasks into smaller tasks
• Meditation and stress-management techniques
• Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
• Psychotherapy (talk therapy)
• Online Video Teletherapy
