ADHD, Depression, and Anxiety

The providers at Texas Specialty Clinic test for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults and then work with you to manage symptoms.

Adults with ADHD are likely to have an anxiety disorder, depression, bipolar disorder, or other comorbid psychiatric disorder.

About 50 percent of adults with ADHD also suffer from an anxiety disorder. Adult ADHD symptoms that coexist with an anxiety disorder or other disorders may significantly impair the ability to function.

What do you need to know about ADHD and memory loss?

ADHD affects two types of memory: working memory, which helps turn information into action, and long-term memory, which is affected by distractions and disorganized brain storage. People with ADHD often struggle with long-term memory tests, as memories are not created but rather lost.

What is cognitive behavioral therapy?

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on the relationship between what you think, how you feel, and the way you behave. Through structured assignments, you identify automatic thoughts, explore whether they’re realistic, and learn ways to change them if necessary.

You also define the places, activities, and thoughts associated with feelings like anxiety and stress. With each step, you learn to change your thoughts, feelings and reactions, which leads to improved mental health.
