The largest undiagnosed group of people with ADHD is women and girls. Girls who are underachieving are often mislabeled as anxious, depressed or not smart because their symptoms are frequently harder to detect. This causes damage to their self-esteem and relationships, and overall missed opportunities in life.
In this mini Dr. H shares the good news that even women who get diagnosed later in life can mitigate the damage that has been done and reshape their lives.
