ADHD, Anxiety or Both? [presentation] [video]

Glen Elliott, PhD, MD, Chief Psychiatrist and Medical Director at CHC, and Chris Harris, MEd, Director of EBC Schools, discuss how behaviors associated with ADHD and anxiety may both occur in the same individual but also can mimic each other, leading to confusion about the best diagnosis and the best treatment approach.

The speakers also discuss the similarities and differences in the presentation of ADHD and anxiety and the common reality that both are present, with each adding to the problems that the other is causing.
