Written Declaration on behalf of ADHD Europe Print

Adult Clinics should be able to offer ADHD transition services to young people where they can continue to obtain the care and multimodal interventions that were available to them as children and adolescents or to establish proper interventions to those newly diagnosed.

 

  • The services that are available for other psychiatric disorders should be also available specifically for young adults (18+) who have ADHD
  • General psychiatrists should familiarize themselves with the symptoms of ADHD in young adults and the specific needs of young adults with ADHD, as well as the new comorbidities they may develop at this age
  • ADHD medication should be available and reimbursable throughout Europe for young people who have ADHD
  • Psychosocial interventions that specifically address the needs of young adults with ADHD should be available publicly throughout Europe
  • Educational accommodations and interventions that support young adults with ADHD in Further Education and Higher Education should be mandatory for educational institutions across Europe
  • The transition from child and adolescent services to adult services should be seamless without a break in treatment
  • Lack of adult services should not lead to withdrawal of treatment
