Every October, we commemorate ADHD Awareness Month, a time dedicated to raising understanding of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This neurodevelopmental disorder affects 1 in 20 Australians.
Despite the growing awareness, the ADHD Foundation fields many calls from the ADHD Australian community in regard to the myths, misinformation, and stigma that still adversely affects the lives of individuals, families and loved ones with ADHD. These obstacles can hinder access to accurate information, prompt diagnosis, treatment, support, and accommodations.
Therefore, this October should be about more than just raising awareness. It’s a time to recognise the years achievements that our community has achieved, and we look foward to big changes in coming years as we continue to work to dispel stigma, enhance community comprehension, and foster acceptance of ADHD.
