As a multi-disciplinary, professional organization. The American Professional Society of ADHD and Related Disorders’ goal is to improve outcomes for individuals with ADHD and their families by promoting research throughout the lifespan on ADHD and disseminating evidence-based practices and education.
ADHD is one of the only mental health disorders that starts in childhood. Given that childhood symptoms persist in a majority of adolescents and adults, it is critical that healthcare professionals are properly educated and trained to ensure effective continuity of patient care.
Led by a diverse Board consisting of global experts in fields such as psychiatry, epidemiology, ethics, coaching, and pediatrics, APSARD’s goal is to work with ADHD patient organizations to heighten the public’s understanding of ADHD to reduce stigma and further promote effective dialogue between healthcare professionals and patients.
