How to raise awareness
The most important thing you can do to raise awareness about ADHD is to educate yourself about it. This is especially important if you have someone with ADHD in your life. Making an effort to learn about and understand the behaviors of someone you care about is one of the meaningful ways of support.
Talking about ADHD is also a great way to raise awareness. If you or someone close to you has been diagnosed with ADHD, don’t be afraid to share your experience. It can open the door to some great conversation.
ADHD associations across the country strive to bring the latest treatments to those who live with attention deficit disorders and sponsor groups for kids and adults with ADHD. Find a group near you and learn what you can do to support their efforts.
There are many adults today living with undiagnosed ADHD. Do you:
Have difficulty paying attention to tasks?
Fail to follow through on things at home or in the workplace?
Have poor time management skills and often fail to meet deadlines?
Frequently have trouble waiting in line?
Have difficulty staying still for an extended time, as in meetings or restaurants?
Frequently make impulsive choices or decisions without thinking things through?
If you’ve experienced these symptoms over a long time, you may have a form of ADHD. Being aware of the symptoms can empower you to seek a diagnosis for yourself and get treatment.
