Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (or ADHD, for short) is a condition that affects your focus. It can make focusing on everyday tasks and routines challenging.

A person with ADHD has differences in brain development and brain activity that affect attention, the ability to sit still, and self-control.

ADHD can affect a child at school, at home, and in friendships.

For years, people with ADHD were labeled as lazy, procrastinators, flaky, or irresponsible.

These labels only produced shame and prevent those with ADHD from seeking help. This video is made to help reduce the stigma.

Reminder: Do not let these labels prevent you from seeking treatment. Remember that these labels, whether they plagued you in the past or follow you in the present, do not represent who you are.

You are more than that. So, if you ever need help, please reach out to a medical health professional for assistance.

If you care about mental health, please read studies about drug that could reduce daydreaming, fatigue, and brain sluggishness in people with ADHD, and supplement that could help lower anxiety.
