Girls Diagnosed With AD/HD May Be More Likely To Attempt Suicide As Young Adults.

HealthDay (8/18, Dallas) reported, “Girls diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD) are up to four times more likely to attempt suicide as young women,” according to a study recently published online in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology. The study of 228 girls also revealed that “girls in the AD/HD-combined group,” that is, with “a combination of hyperactive, impulsive and inattentive symptoms,” were also “much more likely to hurt themselves.”
