Shareable Resources on Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Use these resources to raise awareness about ADHD.
ADHD is a mental disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, concentration, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. ADHD symptoms can appear as early as between the ages of 3 and 6 and can continue through adolescence and adulthood. While there is no cure for ADHD, currently available treatments can help reduce symptoms and improve functioning.
