You will be able to speak with a mental health practitioner who will direct you to the right service, including support from our Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Team.

They will be able to direct you to the most appropriate service. Only in a medical emergency should you contact 999 or attend the local A&E department.
ADHD and ADD are conditions which affect your concentration and patience. You might find that you’re more impulsive and easily distracted, and you find it difficult to focus at work, in school and in relationships.
Having ADHD or ADD shouldn’t stop you from keeping your independence. Although there's no cure for the condition, your symptoms may improve as you get older but it depends from person to person.
At our Adult ADHD Shared Care clinic in Reading we can help you in different ways, such as:
- Providing a full assessment of your ADHD or ADD condition to better understand your situation
- Working with your GP to prescribe you medication, and tracking your progress throughout the year
- Guiding you to other services and patient communities that can help with your questions and experiences
Depending on your assessment with us, we may be able to offer you access to our eight week therapy group programme for advice on living with ADHD or ADD.
To access our service, you must be registered with a GP in Berkshire.
Referral to our service can be made by your GP or your care professional if you’re already receiving care from one of our local mental health services. All our assessments are by appointment only.
Unfortunately, we don’t accept self referrals.
Our Adult ADHD Shared Care clinic is based in Reading.
We’re open from 8:30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
