ADHD impacts about 5-7% of adults, making it one of the most common mental health issues adults face. More importantly, research suggests 58% of relationships in which one or both partners has ADHD are clinically dysfunctional*, about double the rate for the non-ADHD population. This means that virtually every therapist who works with couples encounters ADHD issues in their practice. However, since less than half of adults with ADHD are currently diagnosed, patient and therapist are often unaware that ADHD is playing a significant role in marital dysfunction.
