Attention for ADHD: 9 Key Facts

Speak Up for Kids!

To spread the word about the signs of ADHD and other common psychiatric and learning disorders, Child Mind Institute (CMI) is partnering with Parents and other mental-health organizations on a national campaign called Speak Up for Kids. During National Children's Mental Health Awareness Week (May 6 through 12), local child and adolescent mental-health professionals will hold talks in communities across the nation. Topics include bullying and managing difficult behavior. "The formula is simple: Mental-health experts plus parents and educators equals more help for our children," says CMI president and Parents advisor Harold Koplewicz, M.D. Find an event near you at childmind.org/speakupforkids.
