Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental health disorder that can cause above-normal levels of hyperactive and impulsive behaviors. People with ADHD may also have trouble focusing their attention on a single task or sitting still for long periods of time. Both adults and children can have ADHD, and it can be managed through therapy, medication, or a combination of both. If you find yourself having trouble concentrating, staying organized, being forgetful, or having difficulty staying still, it may be time to get help.
