UPEI, PEI partner on clinic to support adults living with ADHD

The University of Prince Edward Island and the Government of Prince Edward Island have partnered on a pilot project to provide support to adults on the island with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). PEI has invested $1M in the pilot project, which will begin with a clinic in Charlottetown and Summerside. It will use a multidisciplinary approach in which physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers, and psychologists provide comprehensive assistance to patients. Initially, the clinic will primarily focus on supporting teens in transitioning to adult life with assistance such as assessment services, prescription adjustments, counselling, and coaching. “We will help young adults to succeed in high school and in post-secondary education,” said clinic leader Dr David Wong.
