Watch this webinar replay below as Lou Brown shares immediately actionable ADHD advocacy stigma reduction strategies: Small things that make a big difference!

Currently, advocacy efforts are mostly focused on the big things that need to change in order to improve the outcomes for people with ADHD (i.e., better access to service provision, improved models of care, and the inclusion of ADHD education in undergraduate training). While this focus is extremely important, there are some smaller, less talked about things that also need to change. These things can be actioned by all of us immediately and will make a much bigger difference than is usually recognised. As part of AADPA’s ADHD Awareness Month activities, please join us for this webinar and help action the changes we want to see in the world.
