The Maroon 5 frontman has spoken openly about getting a diagnosis for ADHD in his early teens.

He says: “My doctor diagnosed me with ADHD in my early teens. What was really helpful to me was learning that this was a real medical condition – I had ADHD.

“The diagnosis helped explain the challenges I was having in school, including my difficulty focusing, sitting down and getting my school work done.”

And he went on to be in one of the most successful bands ever.
