ADHD and Depression overlap but today’s belief is that if you have ADHD, it trumps the Depression in that treating the ADHD makes the depression better. Getting an accurate diagnosis of ADHD then becomes critical. Of course, a messy and troubled childhood might envelope both of these problems: both aggravating ADHD and percolating depression.
