The Module Helps Adults with ADHD Deal with Their Symptoms and Better Equips Partners and Parents to Provide Support

WALNUT, Calif., June 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Open Forest, a site that offers self-help courses for people dealing with varying mental health issues, recently announced the launch of its new self-help course for adults with ADHD. This particular program supports adults with ADHD, as well as partners and parents who are connected to someone with the disorder, by giving them the knowledge and skills to deal with the symptoms.

According to an article available on Open Forest's site, ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that is characterized by patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. ADHD can affect a person's behavior in multiple settings, such as work, school, and home, and many of the symptoms lead to challenges in daily life. The Open Forest course is comprised of two programs that target these behaviors, both of which help participants identify and change unhealthy thoughts.

Another article by the Open Forest team states that over 18 percent of all U.S. adults have dealt with mental illnesses, so the website offers other courses that deal with other issues such as depression, gambling, drinking, and grief. Online mental healthcare is convenient and cheaper, and Open Forest works to bridge the gap by offering solutions to the problem of affordable, timely access to qualified mental health professionals.

"Over and over, research shows mental health treatment saves tremendous amounts of money for society," said Michiel Bosman MD, the Editor of Open Forest. "Open Forest lowers the threshold even more by offering easy to use, online self help courses for people dealing with mental health issues."

Individuals interested in learning more about Open Forest and its work can visit the company's website for additional information. Readers are also invited to subscribe to Open Forest's Facebook and Twitter accounts for frequent updates from the company.
