What better time than now, during ADHD Awareness Month, to get involved? Become part of CHADD’s #oneof15m social media campaign.
As actress Wendy Davis, ADHD Champion says “having ADHD makes you different, not defective.” Many people have let public misinformation and old assumptions make them feel defective, ashamed and stuck in the closet.
The goal of #oneof15 is to spread awareness and reduce stigma about ADHD. Join this effort to help people affected by ADHD take back their lives.
Here’s what you can do now.
Confront the stigma of ADHD by owning your ADHD & participating in CHADD’s #oneof15m campaign.
Send a message to others that ADHD does not prevent you from achieving your dreams.
Learn about CHADD, the leading organization supporting the ADHD community.
Start an ADHD team, raise funds to support CHADD, the advocacy group for those with ADHD.
Stand up and say that you are one of the 15 million (#oneof15) or that someone you love is one of the 15 million people in the US living with ADHD.
Be part of the movement in three easy steps.
Take a photo (see mine above) representing your take on being part of #oneof15m. Post it on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), tag your photo with 3 people and challenge them to do the same.
Be creative! After all. having ADHD is all about coloring outside of the lines.
