ADHD Awareness Month 2014

A chance to review what we know about ADHD!

ADHD Awareness WeekInternationally, ADHD is celebrated each October with a whole ADHD Awareness Month. ADHD Awareness Month is an international movement to educate the public and create greater awareness and understanding about attention deficit disorder.

The main goal is to help disseminate the facts about this condition, and to dispel myths that keep people affected by ADHD from seeking appropriate treatment.

In Australia, ADDults with ADHD has organised the Adult ADHD Annual Conference on 11 October 2014 in Sydney.

On October 28 LADS WA has organised an awareness event called "Many Faces of ADHD".

Essential facts about ADHD and its treatment can be found in our free downloadable information sheets.

Or you can contact one of the Australian ADHD support groups.

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.
