Help Build ADHD Awareness Across Canada
If you or someone you love has ADHD, you know that most other people still do not understand the full impact this disorder can have.
To help change this, CADDAC has developed several awareness and educational tools. We have also added an ADHDSpeaks Kid’s campaign!
But we need YOU to help get the word out!
Share these videos with those you know will be interested and also with those who need to become more aware of ADHD.
Here are some ways you can share the videos!
- Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) – be sure to tag us @centreforADHD
- Email your friends and/or family
- Email teachers, principle and/or educators
- Email and elected official or decision maker (see details below)
To further ADHD advocacy work we need to raise awareness with elected officials and decision makers. Want to help, but not sure how? It’s as simple as an email, here’s how…
ADHD Awareness Month and CADDAC’s awareness initiatives, including the new animated kids series have been getting attention in the news!

CADDAC is asking people of all ages, including kids, to join the discussion and share their experiences, by text, audio or video. Tell us ONE thing you wish people knew about ADHD (yes pick just one) and submit it to us or share it on social media and tag us!
