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
Referrals and COVID-19
As of Monday 20 July 2020 the service is now in a position to accept new referrals again.
We are not yet running at full capacity and our existing waiting list currently stands at approximately a 15 month wait. Please be aware that while we have re-opened, people who have been referred will still experience a significant waiting time before they can be seen.
We recognise the impact that a long waiting time can have and our team are happy to offer support through consultations where they can, to GPs and other Professionals, in managing service users while they are waiting.
Appointments to commence, restart and make changes to medication have also started up again. We are able to offer appointments using video or telephone calls, and any future correspondence will detail all options available.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
