  • An increasing number of young adults are questioning the neuropsychiatric diagnoses they were given as children and are having the results of their original investigation overturned.

  • That's according to a Swedish Radio survey sent to the heads of child and youth psychiatry (BUP) in the country's 21 regions.

  • "I always felt that my diagnosis did not match what I felt as a person," says Helena, whose atypical autism diagnosis at the age of 13 was later dismissed.
