Use these resources to raise awareness about attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (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. For more information on ADHD, visit the health topic page or view the available brochures.
