Facts about ADHD

from Dr. Daniel G. Amen

33% of people with ADHD never finish high school, compared to the national average of 8.7%.


Many people with ADHD are never hyperactive, and are often ignored because they do not bring enough attention to themselves. Women often have Inattentive ADHD, and are labeled as lazy, unmotivated, or not that smart.



21-25% of inmates in a number of studies have been found to have ADHD.


75% of people with ADHD have interpersonal problems; untreated ADHD results in a higher percentage of motor vehicle accidents, speeding tickets, citations for driving without a license, and suspended or revoked licenses.


Parents of ADHD children divorce 3x more often than the general population.

30-65% of children diagnosed with ADHD will have disabling symptoms into adulthood.


Untreated ADHD isn’t just about hyperactivity, impulsivity, or inattentiveness. It destroys lives. If you haven’t been diagnosed with ADHD, I urge you to seek a psychologist, psychiatrist, or medical doctor that can diagnose and treat ADHD.
