Bergen County CHADD to Present ‘Brain Link Between ADHD And Anxiety/Depression’

Dr. Sarah Cheyette

The Expert Speaker Series of CHADD of Bergen County will present Dr. Sarah Cheyette, a pediatric neurologist, on Monday, March 4 at 8 p.m. via Zoom. Cheyette will discuss the link between anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation and ADHD; treatments available for an ADHD person that struggles with anxiety and/or depression; what to do when a child’s anxiety or depression leads them to avoidance or isolation; and how to help an ADHD child manage school life and keep anxiety and/or depression in check.

Cheyette has written three books on ADHD, explaining its common behavioral symptoms, the biology behind it, and what research has revealed about it, as well as issues faced by parents when considering prescription medications and other approaches to treatment. Cheyette treats people with ADHD with medication and non-medication strategies such as those outlined in her three books, “ADHD and the Focused Mind” (co-written with a karate master Peter Johnson and her husband Ben Cheyette, a psychiatrist); “Winning with ADHD” aimed at preteens, teens and young adults (co-written with Grace Friedman, a young woman who deals successfully with ADHD herself); and “ADHD & Me” for children learning about ADHD.

Cheyette graduated cum laude with a degree in cognitive neuroscience from Princeton University and from the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. She trained in pediatrics at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and in pediatric neurology at Seattle Children’s Hospital. She practices at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where she focuses on treating ADHD in both children and adults. For the last five years, she has been a “Top Doctor” in San Francisco magazine.
