It’s estimated that about 5% of American adults have ADHD, but it’s likely that many more are living without a diagnosis. If you think you might have ADHD, why wouldn’t you want to know for sure?
Only your doctor, psychologist, or psychiatrist can officially diagnose you with ADD or ADHD. Many people are afraid of the stigma of mental health, and that’s why they avoid going to see a psychiatrist or psychologist. Forget about other people’s opinions and go find out for sure. Make an appointment today.
“What if I go for an evaluation and they tell me I don’t have ADHD?” This is a valid concern, but it’s no reason to avoid making a diagnostic appointment! If you don’t have ADHD, you will be able to find out exactly what it is that’s holding you back from reaching your full potential.
STOP PUTTING IT OFF
You deserve a proper medical diagnosis. Not an internet diagnosis. Not a self-diagnosis. Not a “diagnosis” from your partner.
