Sometimes we think that physical or mental health issues are simply a phase that someone is going through and that they will ‘outgrow it’. I don’t want to scare you, but the truth is that any physical or mental health issue that goes untreated is likely to become more of a problem as time goes by and ADHD is no exception to this rule.
In this article, attorney Robert Tudisco states that untreated ADHD increases the risk of incarceration. He sites his personal experiences, as someone diagnosed with ADHD, through his involvement with organizations tasked with helping youth living with ADHD and as a Bronx District Attorney.
There are lots of ways we can help those living with ADHD .
