ADDults with ADHD is a charity dedicated to improving the lives of adults dealing with ADHD in themselves, their family, their friends and their clients.
With care and practical understanding of the daily impacts of ADHD we provide authoritative information and services through our helpline, websites, events and publications.For twenty years we have run quarterly ADHD Awareness Afternoons with practical topics led by great speakers and a chance to meet and chat with others over tea and coffee.
Each year the ADHD Annual Conference brings together the latest thinking on ADHD from clinicians and researchers with our members and the community.
At ADDults with ADHD our vision is to create an Australian community that fully supports, understands and accommodates ADHD.
Our mission is to be 'the' evidence-based information source and advocate for adults with ADHD and their communities in Australia.
As an organisation we value being:
The Committee of Management provides strategic management for our organisation. Officeholders and committee members are elected by the members of our association and represent a cross section of our membership and bring a relevant range of knowledge, skills and experience to their positions.
Current committee members are:
- Dr Caroline Stevenson (President)
- Chris Williams (Vice-President)
- Ray Steele (Secretary)
- Walter Baer (Treasurer)
- Kevin Batchelor
- Tom Buttel
- Garry Finney
- Erica Mann
- Deborah Trevan-Catling
ADDults with ADHD has been operating for 20 years to provide support for adults with ADHD and their families.
There have been 8 Presidents over the past 20 years and many other volunteers serving on the Committee of Management, in the office and at events. ADDults with ADHD is a wholly volunteer-run organisation. However, the quality and range of its services is high and the services comprehensive for the relatively small band of dedicated volunteers who have maintained its operation over the years.
A number of volunteers work at our office to provide services and administrative functions such as:
- telephone helpline and referral information
- information packs and handouts
- membership services
- newsletter publication
- books for sale
- books and DVD library
- event management of awareness afternoons, conferences and seminars
Without our office volunteers we would not be able to provide as much service as we do.
