ADHD and other mental health issues, as they are being more talked about, seem to be coming to the surface a lot more often. This can pose a variety of positive and also negative outcomes, ranging from excuses and laziness. Although ADHD is a fairly serious mental disorder, many don’t take it seriously and use it as a fake excuse to not do certain tasks that they’re not willing to.

Students all over the world are finally speaking up about their mental disorder, but for some, they are only put down as someone who isn’t willing to put in the effort, when in reality, that’s not true at all. People with ADHD usually find it hard to stay concentrated, making it near impossible to study, leading to lower grades and an overall lower GPA. It doesn’t help that some teachers aren’t willing to help those students and instead push them to the side.

When people claim to have ADHD when they don’t, it only further pushes the actions for people with the actual disorder to not be taken seriously. This can result in a negative and stressful environment for the individuals, putting more on their plate to worry about than they can handle. Therefore, using ADHD as an excuse to laziness is not only pushing the agenda that people who can’t focus just aren’t trying hard enough, but is also falsely proving that it shouldn’t really be taken seriously while people are truly suffering.
