Hello from JustAnswer.
These are two different conditions.
You are correct that the disturbance of attention and activity is part of ADHD. However, hypomania refers to a condition that is similar to mania, but not as severe. Mania is a mood disorder that is the opposite of depression. Where depression is an excessive low mood, mania is an excessively elevated mood. Since people with mania also typically have episodes of depression, it is also referred to as manic-depressive disorder or bipolar disorder.
