      I am doing an essay for my class on whether or not therapy helps with ADHD. I am a senior in high school and taking college classes, I was very recently diagnosed with ADHD. We are supposed to pursue a topic of personal interest. I was also diagnosed with depression and anxiety, but I want to focus mostly on ADHD and therapy. Have you tried therapy? Did it help or make it worse? What were the benefits? Thank you to anyone that will answer my questions! I am interested to see everyone’s point of view. Hopefully, this will help with my decision.

      Therapy has all sorts of benefits. I think CBT is one of the most commonly cited effective treatments for ADHD, but so are coaching and behavioral therapies. Talk therapy has mixed results and no long term benefit in some studies. However, I find talk therapy to be very helpful for me.
