BC Government Signs ADHD Awareness Month Proclamation

CADDAC is thrilled to announce that the province of British Columbia has signed a proclamation declaring that the October 2014 shall be known as “ADHD Awareness Month”.

Signed by the Attorney General and Minister of Justice as well as the Lieutenant Governor, the proclamation acknowledges a number of significant facts about ADHD, including that ADHD is the most common childhood mental health condition, that treatment options are limited throughout Canada, and that there is a need for further education and awareness about the disorder.

This is a momentous acknowledgement for the BC government to make, and makes it the perfect setting for our upcoming ADHD Conference this November.
