The 'Adult ADHD and comorbid major depressive disorder' webinar was hosted by Dr Hugh Morgan (Mindcare Centre, Sydney, Australia) on Wednesday 21 March 2018. His presentation covered a range of topics from the prevalence, likelihood of development and differential diagnosis of ADHD to the association of comorbid ADHD and depression on negative life events. He went on to discuss a hypothetical patient case study wherein a bright, articulate, 20-year-old university student struggling with quite severe depression and anxiety for 12 months prior presented to his surgery.
