ADHD diagnosis for adults 'can take seven years'

ADHD diagnosis for adults 'can take seven years' Some adults wait more than seven years to be diagnosed with ADHD because of huge waiting lists, a charity has said.

ADHD Action has lobbied the government to start recording adult ADHD figures, as it already does with autism.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists said people with the behavioural disorder were more likely to commit crime or become suicidal.

About 1.5 million adults in the UK have the condition, ADHD Action said, but only 120,000 are formally diagnosed. BBC News
