Hi @vron7 and welcome to the forums!
It sounds like you have a teen who has been diagnosed with ADHD. How are you all coping with the news? It can be quite a lot to process and is often accompanied with a mixture of emotions. We have a range of resources regarding ADHD that your teen might find helpful here .
There are a few ways you can access a psychologist that specialises in teens with ADHD and your GP is usually the first port of call. Your GP can refer your young person to a psychologist in your community under a mental health care plan. If you have a care plan, the Government will pay for some of the cost of up to 20 sessions in a calendar year via a Medicare rebate. You can also find a suitable psychologist in your community here that specialises in young people with ADHD.
We wish your family all the best and please feel free to connect with us again at any time.
It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
