Hello, I'm Jamie and this Gofundme has been set up in hope of getting an ADHD diagnosis, a diagnosis that would mean understanding how best to manage my symptoms and work towards changing my life for the better. I was in university, studying illustration and I struggled through the first and second year but, my struggles got to be too much in my third year and i've suspended my studies until I'm more stable. Due to the current pandemic, and being brushed off my GPS, i've not even been given the hope of being placed on a waiting list, despite phoning them near monthly since the beginning of this year and due to this, private is the only option left but I am unable to afford it.
The cost of the private diagnosis that i've enquired about, as stated in the assessment guide they provided me, includes: four pre-assessment questionnaires, face to face assessments ( now online, ) 'DIVA' screening tool, and a comprehensive psychiatric report.
This assessment is priced at £695.
Currently, I am not considering medication, I've had bad experiences in the past with medication prescribed to me for mental health reasons ( namely, anxiety, ) and would like to first see how I manage with therapeutic support.
Any support will be greatly appreciated,
Thank you! <3
