ADD/ADHD: What Hall Health Center can do for you

Are you concerned that your symptoms could be ADD/ADHD?

Symptoms commonly associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) are also caused by a variety of other illnesses and conditions. These symptoms include:

  • Difficulty focusing in a variety of situations
  • Problems getting organized
  • Not listening when spoken to
  • Having trouble sitting still or waiting in line
  • Constantly interrupting others
  • Being easily distracted
  • Impulsiveness

Hall Health Center can offer screenings for mental illness and other conditions, but we are unable to test for ADD/ADHD or other learning disabilities.  You may schedule an appointment with us to be screened for other illnesses, and if we suspect ADD/ADHD may be the reason for your symptoms, we will refer you to a provider that can evaluate you for ADD/ADHD.

Have you been diagnosed previously with ADD/ADHD and need medication?

Due to the potential for abuse of ADD/ADHD medications, you will need to take the following steps in order to receive a prescription for medication:

  • Fax your medical records, including your ADD/ADHD evaluation documents, to the UW Medicine Medical Records Department at (206) 616-4683, with your UW student ID number and marked to "Attention:  Hall Health Center." These records must include a full psychological evaluation, with documentation of any other mental illness and/or learning disorders.
  • Schedule an appointment for a records review with a Hall Health Center provider.
