For people with ADHD, distractions can become debilitating and impact everyday tasks many consider straightforward. It is difficult to maintain attention. It's also really difficult to understand why .. and to explain ADHD's impact on us to others who aren’t affected by it. 

The next ADHD AWARENESS AFTERNOON seeks to address these challenges. It will be a unique opportunity to not only learn more about ADHD but also contribute to important ADHD research about how we best explain it to others!

Led by Dr ALISON POULTON from Sydney Medical School at the University of Sydney, we will explore how the ADHD mind works, what happens to our concentration minute-by-minute and hour-by-hour plus how this affects our daily functioning.

With limited Australian research into ADHD, this session is an exciting opportunity to be involved in the production of an analogy or illustration that

* people with ADHD can relate to, and

* people who don't have ADHD can better understand

When life feels like a struggle or things go wrong low mood can begin to take hold.  Ways that we recognise low mood include feeling down, flat or tearful. Being easily frustrated, feeling irritable, concentration problems, appetite or sleep problems are also signs of low mood. 

“People with ADHD feel everything more vividly. When it comes to passion, joy, and curiosity, this is a good thing. When it comes to rejection, overwhelm, and anger, powerful emotions can be debilitating.” says Dr Ed Halliwell M.D. psychiatrist and world-renowned ADHD authority  

 ADDults with ADHD’s next ADHD Awareness Afternoon on SATURDAY 1st JUNE features Dr AMANDA MULLIN, Clinical Psychologist and Director of Mindworx Psychology talking about “BEATING LOW MOOD WHEN YOU HAVE ADHD”.
