Free Webinar Replay: The Anxiety and Depression Hiding Within: How to Recognize and Treat Latent Co-occurring Conditions
Roberto Olivardia, Ph.D., shares how to screen for co-occuring anxiety and depression for people with ADHD.
ADHD doesn’t travel alone. The vast majority of patients with ADHD also have a co-occurring condition like anxiety, depression, or a learning disability. Many times, these overlapping conditions require their own evaluation and unique treatment plan. Yet many doctors and clinicians assume that anxiety or depression are side effects of ADHD or they fail to perform ADHD assessments on patients already diagnosed with anxiety or depression. These failures lead to ineffective treatment plans and long-term health risks.
