Best Wishes for the Holiday Season

To all our members, supporters, clients and visitors we extend our best wishes for the holiday season. Thank you for your support.

In 2015 our organisation will be marking 20 years of providing support to the ADHD community.

The program in 2015 will include our popular events like the quarterly ADHD Awareness Afternoons in March, June, September and December and the Annual Conference in October. There will be more details published as soon as they are available.

The office of ADDults with ADHD will be closed from 19 December 2014 until 7 January 2015.

During January 2015 there will be a limited service available from our volunteer team. Emails and phone messages will be checked each week and responded to as soon as possible. Please allow a little longer than usual for a reply.

The office will be back to normal operations after Australia Day.
