"We wanted to determine the effectiveness of the links between parental mental health and child ADHD, so we did a series of meta-analyses to determine the relationship of parent mental health measures and subsequent ADHD outcomes in children. " ADHD prevalence was elevated in both symptoms and diagnosis, with parental stress and parental depression being strongly associated with increased risk of ADHD overall and both symptoms and diagnosis. Specifically, maternal stress and anxiety, maternal and maternal anxiety, maternal prenatal stress, maternal post-partum depression, and paternal depression were all positively associated with ADHD. Additionally, parental antisocial personality disorder was positively related to ADHD encoding, specifically ADHD. Although not measured dichotomously, only ADHD was connected with prenatal antidepressant use. These results suggest that prevention strategies focusing on parental mental stability and addressing parental conflict may have long-term effects on child health, well-being, and behavioral outcomes.

This paper discusses the systemic lack of mental health outcome reporting in child and adolescent ADHD drug trials.
