Volunteers from my Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group and I are getting some Metro Vancouver BC libraries and bookstores to sign up again or for the first time for ADHD Awareness Week 2013, October 14th to 20th.

We’ll be listing the new libraries and bookstores in different lower mainland BC cities on the Metro Vancouver 2013 ADHD Awareness Activities page.

Please check it regularly for updates.  And let others who might be interested in it know about it. I.e., media, your work/school/non profit group/community center etc.

This is cross posted to my blog Adult ADD Strengths. Canadian ADHD Awareness Week is October 14th to 20th 2013.  The US has ADHD Awareness month, all of October. CADDAC, The Center for ADHD Awareness will be soon putting out more information on ADHD Awareness Week.

Many adult and children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in British Columbia are 3rd class citizens.

The health bureaucracy refuses to demand doctors, psychologist and psychiatrists in BC be properly trained to diagnose and treat adults and children with ADHD. At UBC, medical students only get one hour of training on ADHD.
