MSP & Dundee and Angus ADHD Support Group highlight ADHA Awareness Month

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, better known as ADHD, is a Neuro-Developmental condition that impairs how a person’s mind develops and how they see and interact with the world around them. People with ADHD can often find it difficult to concentrate, follow directions or regulate their impulsive behaviour.

Dundee and Angus ADHD Support group was established in 2013 and aims to provide services to support and empower children, young people and parents/carers suffering from or affected by, the medical condition known as ADHD and through this raise tolerance, awareness, and acceptance of the condition.

The Group provides support through many avenues including youth groups, a parent support group, IMPACT courses and family support.

Mr Dey visited the group at their Arbroath premises, where he spoke with Louise Scott and some of the team about ADHD Awareness Month.

He said: “With the right support, people with ADHD can enjoy successful careers and personal lives. ADHD is associated with many strengths including creative thinking, energy, humour and willingness to take risks. Dundee and Angus ADHD Support Group is an excellent local organisation offering help and support. I would encourage anyone with concerns to reach out to them.”
