Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a common disorder which can be lifelong with a risk of negative long term outcomes. Symptoms affect academic, occupational and social functioning. Co-morbidity is common and the frequency of symptoms such as mood instability alongside core ADHD symptoms in adults can lead to it being mistaken for personality disorder or an affective disorder. It is highly heritable and treatable.
