National ADHD Awareness Week

In accordance to Proclamation No. 472 (2003), every third week October of each year shall be commemorated as the National Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity (AD/HD) Awareness Week.

ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood. It is usually diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood. Children or persons with AD/HD may have trouble paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviors or otherwise act without thinking about what the result will be and they tend to be overly active.

Lack of understanding of the mentioned disorder may result to misconceptions and social stigma which hinder access to effective treatment, increases risk of co-morbid conditions and complications such as conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder and anti-social disorder.

Further, unmitigated condition of AD/HD may lead to the increased incidence of out-of-school youths, child abuse and neglect.

The City Government of Catbalogan joins the nation in raising awareness of ADHD through the National ADHD Week from October 15 – 21, 2020.
