For referrers

ADHD is not always easy to identify. Perhaps you are already familiar with characteristics such as attention problems, restlessness and impulsivity. But when should you get a diagnosis? And in what situations can you refer to a mental health care practice?

Discuss what is required

What makes the diagnosis of ADHD particularly difficult is that there are often related diagnostics. For example, depression, autism, or an anxiety disorder. On this website you can read more about ADHD. [link] If you suspects ADHD in your patient, are unsure about it, or wish to request more information, please feel free to call or email ADHD City. Together we will discuss what we can do for you. We can schedule an introductory meeting with your patient to arrive at a proper diagnosis.
