Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, commonly known as ADHD, may be a risk factor for several other mental disorders, according to research recently published in BMJ Mental Health.   According to the findings, mental health conditions associated with ADHD include:

  • major depressive disorder (MDD)
  • post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • anorexia nervosa
  • suicidal behavior

The study authors note that previous observational studies have found a link between ADHD and various mental disorders. However, it is unclear whether ADHD causes them.

They also suggest that mental health professionals treating patients with ADHD should be aware of the possibility that these other mental disorders could co-occur with ADHD.
