Helping my brother help himself.

Asking for my 25-year-old brother: do you know of free or cheap mental health resources in Houston? Or a great therapist with a sliding scale? I'm doing the requisite googling, but just in case I miss something ... Thank you so much!

add hampering therapy

Can add interfere with someone's capacity to work the therapeutic process? Anecdotes and data both welcome. Particularly interested in therapy with homework eg CBT. When the add is treated, does therapy effectiveness increase?

Should I communicate to other that I have ADHD? If so, how?

I've just been diagnosed with Adult ADHD. (No, this isn't the person who inquired earlier, although it inspired me to get it checked.) I'm going to be getting therapy to get better, but I wanted to know how you would view a person who admitted he had ADHD to you? It's apparent to me now that I've messed up a lot of things in my life because of it (Failing out of college, frequent job changes, crappy social life). I want to be able to say, "Hey, I messed up because of this, but I'm changing for the better." If you were an employer or even a guy/girl I was asking out, would you accept this as an excuse for my prior mistakes? Should I even mention it at all?
