Excerpt
According to the American Psychiatric Association, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a disruptive behavior disorder characterized by on-going inattention and/or hyperactivity occurring in several settings and more frequently and severely than is typical for individuals in the same stage of development. Symptoms begin before 7 years of age and can cause serious difficulties in home, school and/or work life. ADHD can be managed through behavioral or medical interventions, or a combination of the two. What are the findings of this study? CDC researchers reported a fourfold increased association of ADHD in children whose mothers have a chronic and activity-limiting mental health condition (as reported in the 1998 National Health Interview Survey). Families with a child with ADHD use more healthcare resources for their child than unaffected families. Yet these families are significantly more likely to report that they cannot afford prescription medications and mental healthcare services for their child. By considering the mental health of the mother, healthcare providers might be able to reduce the individual, family, and social impact associated with childhood ADHD. Future explorations of this association will largely depend on improvements in the quality of nationally-representative data on the mental health of children and adults, access to mental healthcare services, and the use of these services.
