WHAT IS ADHD?
ADHD is a chronic neurodevelopmental disorder affecting 5% of children and 4% of adults in Canada, or 1.5 million Canadians.Children and Adults with ADHD have inconsistent performance at school and work and struggle with day-to-day responsibilities. They experience difficulty in relationships with family, friends, and loved ones and experience chronic feelings of frustration, guilt, or blame. Individuals with ADHD may also experience challenges in executive function and working memory and are often stigmatized as being disorganized, unreliable, unmotivated or lazy.Often unrecognized, misdiagnosed, and undertreated, ADHD can lead to severe consequences, including school failure, family strain, impaired social interactions with peers, chronic low self-esteem, depression, substance abuse, accidental injuries, and job loss.Treatment can minimize the negative consequences associated with ADHD and dramatically improve productivity and quality of life.Every province in Canada has committed to improving the mental health and well-being of Canadians. While “early identification and intervention," “healthy communities,” and “access to timely services” are words we often hear, for people with ADHD, these are nearly impossible to attain when wait times for mental health services can be up to 1.5
