ADHD CONFERENCE: High Point in 2018

It was almost standing room only at this years popular ADHD Annual Conference. A host of expert ADHD speakers gave their time generously to the large packed auditorium at St Barnabas Conference Centre Sydney on Saturday 20 October 2018.

The event is a highlight of ADHD Awareness Month. It acts as a focal point and forum for ADHD expert speakers to pass the latest information onto individuals, loved ones, carers and educators. All funds made from the conference cover the cost of putting on the event run by ADDults with ADHD.

Over 130 attendees seeking the latest evidence-based information and support resources came from around Sydney, NSW, ACT, VIC, SA and QLD.

People attend to obtain information on ways they can create a better life, deepen their ADHD understanding or take away new ideas and strategies for managing symptoms.

Dr Edwina Birch opened the conference with a high level overview of the ADHD issues currently facing Australia, where currently based on research 1 million meet the diagnostic criteria, but the majority still remain untreated. The audience were encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas on what needs to be done to improve ADHD awareness, reduce the stereotypical misconceptions and to consider both the social and economic costs of not treating ADHD for society as a whole.
