Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties - ADHD

Social, emotional and mental health difficulties

Children and young people may experience a wide range of social and emotional difficulties which present themselves in many ways. They may:

  •  have difficulty in managing their relationships with other people
  •  be withdrawn
  •  behave in ways that may hinder their and other children’s learning or that have an impact on their health and wellbeing

This broad area includes attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or attachment disorder. It also includes behaviours that may reflect underlying mental health difficulties such as anxiety, depression, self-harming and eating disorders.

 

In the UK it’s thought that between 2% to 5% of school aged children have ADHD.
It was thought that children diagnosed with ADHD can outgrow the symptoms of ADHD in adolescence however this is not always the case and many individuals still exhibit ADHD challenges well into their adult life.
Up to 60% of adults who have childhood ADHD will continue to show symptoms into their adult life.
The NHS has accepted ADHD as a condition since 2009. It is possible to access diagnosis and treatment through the NHS but it must be done through a GP.

Below is a short video sharing more information about ADHD. It is 5 minutes, a quick informative watch.
