Mental Health Tidbits

‘Did You Know’ these ‘Mental Health Tidbits’?

1. ADD/ADHD children and adults are much more likely to wet their beds… why?   They usually sleep deeply and don’t easily awaken to the body’s urge to urinate.

2. The experience of ‘déjà  vu’ is feeling like you experienced something before when you know that you really did not.  Usually, the only individuals who experience déjà vu are those who have ADD/ADHD, a seizure disorder, or a closed head or traumatic brain injury.

3. A physical anomaly of individuals with ADD/ADHD is ears that are usually set lower on the head.

4. Because nicotine initially stimulates the brain, then acts as a tranquilizer and sedative, it is commonly smoked or chewed by ADD/ADHD individuals before bed time.

5. The neurotransmitters for the brain are largely produced in the gut of an individual.  Good nutrition and the health of the gut are inter-related with every person’s ‘mental health.’
