Are you a parent of a teen or a teenager who’s transitioning into adulthood? Well, this episode of the All Things ADHD podcast is for you. We gave our mic over to guest host Liam Tolbert, a teenager who is managing ADHD and learning to be independent. Many teens with ADHD may find emerging into adulthood stressful, frustrating, and challenging since most of their life has been supervised by a parent, teacher, or caregiver. Tolbert speaks with Dr. Eugene Arnold, CHADD’s resident expert, about ADHD healthcare responsibilities young adults need to know, understanding and managing symptoms to help individuals succeed, and overcoming barriers to accessing good healthcare.

Many women struggle at midlife with undiagnosed and untreated ADHD complicated by hormonal changes. They typically report feeling overwhelmed, inadequate, misunderstood, and distressed at a time in their lives when they often have the greatest demands on their time and energy. Women not diagnosed with ADHD until adulthood are more likely to suffer from depressive symptoms, anxiety, sleep disorders, eating disorders, substance use, and low self-esteem.
In this episode, Dr. Carol Robbins provides an understanding of the challenges women face in midlife with ADHD, coping strategies, and the importance of reaching out when help is needed.
