I was interviewed on CKNW 980 Am Radio by @alisonbailey980 on October 14th on the 24 Libraries Doing ADHD Book Displays and Other Awareness Week Events in 8 BC cities for ADHD Awareness Week October 14-20th 2012
The creative, hardworking, hyperfocusing volunteers of my Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group and our many supporters got ADHD book displays in 26 libraries in 8 cities plus bookstores and an info table at a local community center, The Roundhouse to help promote ADHD Awareness Week
ADHD Awareness Week in the Lower Mainland
ADHD Awareness Week has kicked off across Metro Vancouver.
Pete Quily leads the non-profit Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group.
His group is putting on activities throughout this week in eight Metro Vancouver cities.
It started Sunday with an information booth at Vancouver's Roundhouse Community Centre.
"We have twenty six libraries in eight cities: Vancouver, Surrey, Richmond, Burnaby, Coquitlam, North Vancouver, Maple Ridge, and Aldergrove, displaying ADHD books and posters."
Quily says there's lots of stigma about the behavioral disorder, and he wants to dispel any myths people may have.
He says the United States has had ADHD awareness day or week for a number of years.
Vancouver City Council declared ADHD awareness week last year and Quily says council will be declaring it again this week.
