Unique Insights at End Of Year Awareness Afternoon

  • Print

On Saturday 2 December, an appreciative group of people from a variety of backgrounds experienced the ups and downs of ADHD from a unique perspective. 

Organised by ADDults with ADHD, the ADHD Awareness Afternoon's theme was "Living With Adult ADHD". Special guest speaker, Ross Leonard, Forensic Psychologist and experienced psychologist with extensive training both nationally and internationally, was diagnosed with ADHD later in life himself. 

Dr Leonard is a popular speaker with ADDult with ADHD members. Attendees at the  event found him happy to share his thoughts and ideas on the 'ups and downs' of living with ADHD. He was most gracious and devoted much time to questions from the audience.

This was the last event for 2017. After the talk, attendees were treated to some pre-Christmas fare and Dr Leonard answered further questions over tea and coffee.

ADDults with ADHD is a volunteer run, not for profit charity dedicated to supporting adults and families living with the challenges of ADHD. Due to increasing demand, they have been running these popular ADHD Awareness Afternoons quarterly for more than 21 years. 

Awareness Afternoons showcase practical topics led by authoritative speakers. They also provide free self-help information and create chances for attendees (people with ADHD, carers, health professionals etc) to connect with others over tea and coffee.

There will be new Awareness Afternoons scheduled for 2018 and ADDults with ADHD invites everyone to attend.
