NIMH logoThe booklet Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) was published by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) in 2009.  It is a good resource stating the current conventional wisdom (generally accepted and sometimes wrong beliefs) and treatment standards regarding ADHD.  

However, conventional wisdom about ADHD

    • doesn't tell the whole story,
    • is influenced by pharmaceutical industry marketing and involvement in research,
    • is outright wrong sometimes.
