#AttentionUK is a campaign about one of the few mental health conditions that doesn’t appear to be becoming less stigmatised in the UK. That disorder is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, better known as ADHD.
ADULTS WITH UNTREATED ADHD ARE:
7 times more likely than their peers to have had multiple vehicle crashes
twice as likely to be fired from a job
9 times more likely to end up in prison
THAN PEOPLE WITHOUT THE DISORDER.
40% OF THE UK PRISON POPULATION MAY HAVE UNTREATED ADHD.
ADHD IS ONE OF THE MOST COMMON PSYCHIATRIC DISORDERS IN THE WORLD.
So why doesn’t it get discussed?
