October is ADHD Awareness Month!
Knowing is better! That’s why ADHD Awareness Month is celebrated every October, with events and activities happening all across the country and now, around the world, on the ground and on the Internet, capturing the notice of numerous national, regional and local media outlets resulting in articles, interviews and feature stories.
While awareness about adult ADHD has certainly grown, we have a long way to go before we’re able to help ADHDers everywhere. ADDA believes one of the best ways we can extend the benefits of awareness is to equip ADHDers with resources to help themselves.
Every October, as we celebrate ADHD Awareness Month, you can count on ADDA to find new ways to make it easier than ever for you, an adult with ADHD to help yourself.
If you’re not already subscribed to ADDA’s newsletter, the ADDA Insider, join our mailing list today and stay tuned throughout the month for exciting announcements that will help you help yourself.
