(Brown University Child & Adolescent Psychopharmacology, 2014). The increased of ADHD has affect the medication that is used to treat. This is cause for concern because lack of healthcare can provide treatment and help. Some are even unable to received proper mental health evaluation in treatment as well, “18% of children did not receive any mental health counseling or medication in 2011–2012 (Brown University Child & Adolescent Psychopharmacology, 2014). The raised of ADHD has cause issues in medical field, making it difficult to provide proper healthcare to those suffering from ADHD.
2Another suggested reason for growth in ADHD is the stigma surrounding ethic groups. Cultural sensitivity has contributed to medical field lack of intervention on properly diagnosing these groups. Due to lack of knowledge on how on how to treat minorities many went un-diagnose. “From kindergarten to 8th grade, children from each racial/ethnic minority group were significantly less likely to receive an ADHD diagnosis than whites” (Brown University Child & Adolescent Behavior Letter, 2013). Due to racial differences minority kids are underdiagnoses.
