Fact Sheets on Adult ADHD

ADDults with ADHD sends out several Information Packs every week to people who contact the Helpline looking for information or referral to a professional. It is one of the valuable assets that our organisation has found very effective in educating the community. You may have seen some of the material on an information table at one of our Annual Conferences or at an Awareness Afternoon.

The fact sheets are often reviewed to ensure that they remain up-to-date, relevant and authoritative.

This year through sponsorship from Eli Lilly Australia we have been able to give a few of them a highly professional makeover. The first two facts sheets – About Adult ADHD and Treating Adult ADHD - have been completed. Two further titles in the same format will be completed over the next couple of months.
