Mental-Health and Stress Management


People with ADHD may feel a heightened level of stress due to more difficulties regulating emotions and negative reactions. Small stressors such as missing deadlines or forgetting appointments may compound into unhealthy levels of stress and anxiety. However, with more awareness on your emotions and utilization of available resources, sources of stress and anxiety may be able to be reframed and reduced.

*For more information on additional coping mechanisms and stress management for people with ADHD, please refer to the Patient Toolkit.
