Depression, Anxiety & ADHD in Children

Greensboro ADHD treatmentIs your child suffering from ADHD? Do you constantly worry about what living with this disease will do to them? Attention deficit disorder is a condition that many children suffer from. They are unable to focus, very impulsive and can't sit still in school or at home. At times, children get extremely frustrated by the symptoms. Parents may become frustrated, as well. That is normal.

However, help is available. Getting a better understanding of mental illness and how it can affect children is key. For the best Greensboro ADHD treatment for kids, call Legacy Freedom.

Depression, Anxiety, and ADHD in Children

In some cases, many children who suffer from ADHD also have anxiety disorder or depression. The emotional problems that come from anxiety and depression can be extremely severe or mild. It depends on genetics and how long the child has been suffering with symptoms.

Recent studies show that almost half of all children who have ADHD also suffer from depression or anxiety. They can also have OCD, learning disabilities or other neurological problems.

Depending on the case, these problems can be secondary to ADHD. However, it's possible the ADHD is stemming from long-term anxiety issues or depression. Sometimes, anxiety is triggered by frustration from dealing with symptoms of ADHD.

One of the best ways to treat ADHD, anxiety, and depression, no matter which disease is the forerunner for your child, is through holistic treatment. Without medication, you and your child can learn how to deal with symptoms and learn to cope with having the disease.

If you are unsure whether or not your child has ADHD or another type of mental illness, consider the following symptoms:

  • Hard time listening to and following directions
  • Inability to focus
  • Inability to remember details
  • Problems completing tasks
  • Restlessness
  • Trouble staying organized

Symptoms can be experienced in a variety of combinations. Sometimes symptoms are extremely apparent and other times they are mild. If you feel like these symptoms are a part of your child's everyday life, it might be time to consider getting help. It's not their fault. They shouldn't have to suffer.
