Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Thank you for your detailed answer. Where can I find a psychiatrist to make a diagnosis and give me the help I need If I do? and also do people with ADD have low confidence, because they may do mistakes at work?
my location is UK, Manchester, m13 9sz. Thank you.
Are you still researching on my last question?
Hi, I'd like to help you with your question.Here are some resources to help you:http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder/Pages/Treatment.aspx http://www.trafford.nhs.uk/health-a-to-z.aspx?letter=A&path=articles/attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder/treatment http://www.adders.org/englandmap.htm http://righttherapist.com/dir/therapists/greater-manchester/add-adhd/cbt/accredited/ http://www.bacp.co.uk/ People with ADD/ADHD can make more mistakes at work because of the difficulty with concentration and focus. The results of that can be more of a struggle to "keep up" with their peers. Because of the stress and difficulty, a person with ADHD can experience lower confidence and self esteem.I hope this helps you,Kate
Is this ADHD/ADD gentic? and Is it a disabillity? Should you tell this to your employer if you want to work? I personally don't think so, but this time people seem to think your not so good as others.

It is thought that there is a genetic component to ADHD/ADD but the cause is still uncertain. It can be considered a disability if it interferes enough in your daily life. Telling your employer is a tricky situation. You may not want to if you are able to do your job fairly well and your employer is happy with your work. If you feel that you do want to tell your employer, then you may want to consider getting some opinions from an attorney or any equal employment opportunity agency (equivalent in the UK) that can advise you of your rights if your employer does hold it against you.
