      I simply had a conversation with my therapist and she got the process started and diagnosed me, and now I'm meeting with a psychiatrist to help with the path to finding the right medication.

      Although I was diagnosed when i was in elementary school and i don’t really know much about the process i went through i do know that you can always start a new diagnosis with a call to your primary care provider, they will probably refer you to a psychiatrist and then you’ll be evaluated and continue from there. this is how i got depression/anxiety diagnosed and i’m sure it isn’t too different with adhd.

      I am sure it's different everywhere but I was referred to a doctor by my mom but then he was booked until August and I just asked the receptionist if she could refer me somewhere else, then I went to a different location. I got my prescription that day but because of a shortage I had to call around and see which pharmacies had it. I have only been on it 2 days and I have done more chores and housework than I have in months!

      I spoke to my university (I'm UK based) and they diagnosed me. Other options include going via your GP or privately (have a look online or ask for recommendations in ADHD Facebook groups). If you're based in England then have a look into Right to Choose as that route is free but speedy (if I'm remembering correctly). But deffo have a google and a nose on Facebook groups (and of course asking on here!)

To get an ADHD diagnosis, you should start by talking to your doctor about your concerns. They can help guide you on the right track to diagnosis. You may be referred to a psychiatrist or psychologist who can administer tests, such as questionnaires or verbal assessments, to determine if you have ADHD.
