As the year comes to a close, we want to share a victory from 2020 that we are very proud of. With help from Priscilla Eyles in particular, Mind have finally agreed to host a page with information about ADHD. The page is a bit hard to find on their website (you have to actively search for ADHD) but it as least there and ADHD is finally being acknowledged as a real condition with real mental health implications. We have been working on this since 2017, and can’t count how many emails we have sent Mind about it, so we’re very pleased. Hooray!
We will continue to work on getting Mind to recognise ADHD as a mental health disorder that is neurodevelopmental in nature, and to include more detailed information on it, including on their general information pages.
If you have been involved in any way, whether by emailling Mind yourself or retweeting us, thank you for your support!
