If you think you have ADHD you might not know where to start.

Here is what I recommend. Fill out this form and bring it to your general practioner.

Start a conversation with them, and if you live in an area where it is possible for you to see a specialist in ADHD, and Your GP feels it's a good idea get a referral.

If you feel your GP is trustworthy and knowldegeable and these resources do not exist, ask for a referral for a psychiatrist.
