The Leeds Adult ADHD Service provides specialist assessment and management of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adults and young people in transition (from the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, known as CAMHS) who require ongoing monitoring and management of their condition.
We liaise with social and occupational services where appropriate and offer training in and help to raise awareness of Adult ADHD to interested stakeholders.
Referrals are welcome both for individuals, whom have had a previous diagnosis of ADHD and require reassessment due to current symptoms and impairments, and those individuals whom have had no previous diagnosis, but have symptoms and impairments both currently and dating back to early childhood which are consistent with an ADHD diagnosis.
For more information on moving from the Children and Adolescent mental health service to the Leeds Adult ADHD service you can download the CAMHS to ADHD leaflet.
Our services provide;
assessment of Adult ADHD
pharmacological management of ADHD
therapeutic intervention including on a 1:1 basis and group work. This work is based on a CBT and occupational therapy approach
Due to COVID-19 the following changes are in place as below:
We are now closed to new referrals to the service however please note those already on our waiting list remain on the waiting list and we will contact people when we are in a position to offer an assessment. We appreciate that there is already a considerable waiting time and that this is going to lengthen even further.
Face to face diagnostic assessment appointments have been stopped. We will endeavour to continue starting people’s assessments whilst we have the resource to do so but will look to use either video calls or telephone calls. Any future correspondence will detail options available.
Appointments to commence, restart or make changes to medication have been stopped and we are holding a waiting list for this part of the service.
We have had to stop all group work and also 1:1 therapeutic work.
We do not currently have the resource to complete annual reviews.
We do not accept self-referrals – referrals can only be accepted from professionals. All referrals need to include a referrer form AND a service user completed form. We ask that professionals please complete the attached referrer form and that they ask the service user to complete the service user form. Both the referrer and service user completed parts must be sent together via email to: email@example.com
