ADHD virtual issue of Child & Adolescent Mental Health

February 07th, 2013

Child & Adolescent Mental Health (CAMH) has a virtual issue that pulls together a number of papers published in CAMH in recent years that have focused on ADHD. The issue distils key clinical practice and research messages from articles that were published prior to and since the publication and dissemination of the NICE ADHD guidelines. Together the articles (reflecting expert commentary, review articles, and original research) provide a comprehensive guide across a full range of debate around identification, recognition, associated problems, assessment, service organisation, and interventions for children and adolescents with ADHD.
