Here at ‘ADHD and Me’ we understand that raising awareness, isn’t a competition and it can’t happen through just one website alone, but with the support of the whole ADHD community, which is why we happily share links for anyone trying to fight the good fight and raise awareness.
We will be adding more website links as they become available or appropriate. If you think you have a website link that may be of interest to the ADHD community, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

There are several petitions currently being ran on the UK parliament petitions website. One is to hold a public enquiry into pre and post diagnosis ADHD support is underway and needs 100,000 signatures from within the UK to be discussed by parliament. This would mean that referal times are looked at, as well as what support can be offered in the meantime. Click here to sign it.
