Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is classified as a mental disorder that can appear in both children and adults.
Many adults who have ADHD don't seek treatment, because they mistake it for another mental illness or don't believe ADHD is real.
While ADHD usually affects a person's executive functioning skills (i.e., motivation, focus, memory, organization, impulse control, etc.), the disorder can be managed effectively with the proper treatment.
Most people with ADHD benefit from a combination of medication, therapy, and by developing valuable life skills and healthy coping mechanisms.
