Teen Depression and Anxiety Webinar

April 9 @ 12:00pm - 1:00pm CDT

ADHD doesn’t travel alone. Most teens with ADHD also have a co-occurring condition like anxiety or depression. Sometimes the co-existing condition is a result of the ADHD, and other times it operates alongside ADHD.

When a patient presents these conditions together, it can create a varied clinical picture because each diagnosis impacts, and is impacted by, the other. This can sometimes lead to misdiagnosis or inadequate treatment for at least one condition. The challenge in diagnosis and treatment can also be complicated by puberty.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The symptoms of depression and anxiety disorders, and how to distinguish them from ADHD and normal child and adolescent development
  • How depression or anxiety affects ADHD symptoms
  • How ADHD can actually lead to, or affect, depression and anxiety
  • How to devise a treatment plan when ADHD exists alongside anxiety or depression
