I used to under the impression it was a learning disorder but most list it as a mental disorder/illness. This article talks about where it fits in:

ADD is a neurological disorder that results in learning disability because of memory and focus problems

when it is coupled with hyperactivity, as ADHD, I have seen it classified under mental illness
