Coping with emotions
Whether you’re feeling angry, sad, frustrated, lonely, or anxious - it’...
ADHD is treatable! It’s important to see a health professional like a GP, psychologist or psychiatrist, for diagnosis and support. They can help you figure out the right treatment options for you.
Here are some things that may be helpful:
Medication – as prescribed and monitored by a medical professional.
Relaxation techniques – things like mindfulness, meditation and yoga may help manage ADHD symptoms.
Social skills training – this means learning how to interact with other people in different, appropriate ways. This can help improve interpersonal relationships with other people, such as peers and friends.
Behaviour therapy – this teaches you how to monitor your behaviours and change them to more appropriate behaviours. This usually includes planning strategies for how to respond in different situations (and these might vary from person to person).
You might be feeling scared or embarrassed to ask for help, but talking to someone about what you’re going through can really help.
You can also get in touch with the ADHD Foundation for specialist information and support.
