Please note I am a Registered Midwife licensed by the BC College of Nurses & Midwives. I synthesize and translate the latest evidence on ADHD and pregnancy into information that is accessible for pregnant people and health care providers. I'm passionate about informed choice and person and family centred care.  Please note that I do not offer diagnosis, nor do I prescribe medications for the management of ADHD. I am not a clinically trained psychologist or counsellor.

 

Unsure if you have ADHD?

Unsure if you have ADHD? Check out this Free Adult Self-Report Scale (ASRS v1.1) for ADHD. A score >4 warrants further assessment.

 

You can get assessed through your Family Doctor or Nurse Practitioner.

 

If you live within the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority and are 17-35 you can get an MSP-covered assessment through the Regional ADHD Clinic.  

 

If you live anywhere in BC you can also ask your health care provider to refer you to Level Up ADHD for an MSP-covered ADHD assessment.

 

The Adult ADHD Centre offers adult ADHD assessments across Canada. For BC residents, an assessment through the public MSP system, to see Dr. Parhar is available but due to high demand, there is a wait time. If a sooner ADHD assessment is required, and for those people that reside outside of BC,  there is a Private Assessment completed by the Nurse Practitioners-ADHD Consultants who are unable to bill public health,  to register for the private assessment registerhere. They also offer the Adult ADHD Centre Compassion Program which waives the fee for Canadian residents experiencing financial hardship and is referred by a healthcare provider. Request a referral from from ADHD@adultaddhcentre.com.

Some people who don't have MSP or who feel they can not wait for MSP assessment access diagnosis through other private clinics including North Shore ADHD Clinic
