On this week’s program, Dr. Joe Sirven examines the symptoms of and treatments for ADHD, a neurodevelopmental disorder that most often occurs in children but can also be diagnosed in adulthood. Adults with ADHD may find it difficult to focus, prioritize and exhibit self-control.

Dr. Lenard Adler, director of the Adult ADHD Program at NYU Langone Health and professor at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine, explains how ADHD presents differently in adults and children.

Then, we explore recent data on veterans’ mental health. With more than 1.5 million veterans in Florida, The Fire Watch Project supports veterans in crisis.

Guest: Nick Howland, executive director of The Fire Watch Project in Northeast Florida
