Join Senator Marielle Smith, Deputy Chair of the Senate ADHD Inquiry for a special Q&A session with Prof. Mark Bellgrove.
This week the Australian Senate Committee for Community Affairs handed down a consensus report on assessment and support services for people with ADHD.
After receiving 700 submissions and hearing from over 75 witnesses, 15 key recommendations were made that had the support of the entire Committee.
When speaking about the report in Parliament, Senator Smith drew attention to a number of priority issues including the development of uniform prescribing, better coordination of services and improved awareness campaigns about stigma. She also spoke about her own personal experience with ADHD.
During this special Q&A session, we’ll hear:
- How the Committee arrived at these recommendations.
- How they worked through all of the submissions and testimony to decide what to include and what to leave out.
- Will the Government implement the recommendations?
- What would Senator Smith like to see happen next?
All questions are welcome to make this webinar as interactive and valuable as possible. Please note that live webinar attendance and Q&A participation is for AADPA members only. Click here for more information about AADPA membership.
