Posted on : 06 Oct 2016 | No Comments

(Dallas,TX 2016) – Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD) is one of the most prevalent and misunderstood conditions in the world, according to Sarah D. Wright, ADHD Awareness Month Coalition Chair. “You may not be aware of it, but whether you are affected by it yourself, or someone you love or work with is affected by it, ADD/ADHD has touched your life.”

ADHD Awareness Month is an international movement to educate the public and create greater awareness and understanding about attention deficit disorder. “Our goal is to help individuals learn about this disorder and dispel myths so that people affected by ADHD can seek and receive effective treatment,” said Gerard Jacob, CEO of PeakBrain.

With increased awareness, more people can get the help they need to live better, more rewarding lives.

PeakBrain and the ADHD Awareness Coalition will recognize ADHD Awareness Month throughout October 2015 by joining with millions of adults, families, and children living with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, as well as health care professionals, psychologists, and other thought leaders, to promote greater awareness about ADHD. ADHD, a neurodevelopmental disorder, affects millions of Americans regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status. Recognized widely by medical organizations as varied as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), ADHD causes significant impairment at work, in school, and throughout the daily lives of those affected by it.

Ruth Hughes, former CEO of CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), referred to current research, saying, “ADHD has many faces. It affects people of all ethnic backgrounds and all socioeconomic classes. This is an important month when our community comes together to rally around the cause of ADHD awareness.”

PeakBrain is dedicated to improving brain health for children and adults.
