Social Isolation in Childhood Is Associated With ADHD Symptoms and Loneliness in Young Adulthood

By Kathleen McCarthy posted 08-11-2022 12:21

  

New research from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) has found that socially isolated children are more likely to experience ADHD symptoms and loneliness as young adults despite other risk factors in childhood. The study, published in JCPP Advances, investigated why some children become isolated and the implications for later outcomes. … The study revealed that the experience of social isolation in childhood was associated with a range of difficulties in adulthood, even when the isolation itself had reduced. The findings suggest that childhood social isolation can indicate co-occurring mental health difficulties, which can be used to guide intervention in young people.
