Affordable and easier mental health diagnosis

In 2022, the estimated number of U.S. children diagnosed with ADHD is 6 million. ADHD affects three to five per cent of children and two per cent of adults in the UK but is greatly underdiagnosed.

It is estimated that only 1% of children are formally diagnosed, this is to do to a lack of funding and resources.

A new study suggests that people with a diagnosis of ADHD are less likely to commit crimes when there is early intervention and lifelong treatment.

GPs are stretched and specialist centres are scarce. Fewer people in the US and UK have a formal diagnosis for this condition, despite waiting for many years on waiting lists.

Our Approach

When it comes to assessing ADHD, the first step is to answer all questions truthfully. The questions asked will be relevant to whether or not you may qualify for ADHD treatment.

For example, questions will be asked about your age and sex, as these factors can affect an individual's symptoms and treatment options. The self-test may ask if you've noticed that you become easily distracted when completing tasks. You'll be asked to rate your response on a scale ranging from "never" to "slightly" to "often".

In addition to these questions, you'll be assessed for a variety of other symptoms. This information will be used by healthcare professionals and algorithms to give you an accurate assessment of your condition.

Symptoms of ADHD can present themselves in various settings, such as at home, school, or work. If you exhibit signs of the condition in two or more of these settings, a diagnosis of ADHD is possible.

To make a diagnosis of ADHD, healthcare professionals use the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition (DSM-5), which provides a set of diagnostic criteria for the condition.

DSM-5 Diagnostic criteria for ADHD

According to the DSM-5, an individual must exhibit six or more symptoms of inattention and/or six or more symptoms of hyperactivity-impulsivity for at least six months. The symptoms must be present in two or more settings, such as at home and at school or work, and must cause significant impairment in social, academic, or occupational functioning.
