Support ADHD Awareness Week

From SAMHSA: October 16–22, 2011

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a serious public health issue. Nearly every mainstream medical, psychological, and educational organization in the United States has concluded that it is a real, brain-based medical disorder and that children and adults with ADHD benefit from appropriate treatment.

Support ADHD Awareness Week by learning—and sharing—the facts:

  • ADHD is real.
  • ADHD is a common, nondiscriminatory disorder.
  • Diagnosing ADHD is a complex process.
  • Other mental health conditions often occur along with ADHD.
  • ADHD is not benign.
  • ADHD is nobody’s fault.
  • ADHD treatment is multifaceted.
