About us

ADHD Foundation

Our Foundation has been established to bring about positive change for people affected by ADHD and other associated conditions. The nature of the condition makes it very difficult for people to find and access to the help they require to deal with complex organisations like health, education and
support services. Currently, there is no systematic pathway, approach or support, for people navigating life with this complex condition.

OUR STORY

We

ADHD presents in the media in a negative way that creates stigma, which erodes self- esteem, and confidence. ADHD support is not a one size fits all.
Negative reactions caused by a lack of understanding of ADHD, by many within the Health and Education sectors demonstrates an enormous need to provide education and understanding, leading to better outcomes.

We understand the excessive financial costs to people where diagnosis of ADHD and medication is extremely high and sometimes prohibits much needed treatment. Treatment is through private avenues as the Public Health Systems of the states and territories, avoid diagnosis and treatment, especially in Adults. Large numbers of those with ADHD cannot afford to meet the costs charged in the Private Health System to obtain the treatment they require. The ADHD Foundation is committed to developing ways to reduce this cost.

The ADHD Foundation plans to develop ADHD friendly services through various highly effective technology systems and services. Our focus is on supporting people with ADHD to shine in their own individual way through
the development a more robust and positive approach to wellbeing; by engaging in projects that provide a higher functional system across multiple and related organisations who are triving to improve standards and
processes. We aspire to provide a better system that allows people with ADHD to navigate their way through some very complex and complicated systems. We also propose to act as an advisory group to assist and support government to understand what changes need to happen and difficulties that can disable the aspirations and dreams of people with ADHD, and the very important ways the scheme can help.
