One day workshop on Adult ADHD
Ten years ago few adult ADHD clinics existed, but thankfully now there are a lot more. This workshop is focused on running a successful adult service. Why? How? What is different from a CAMHS or paediatric service?
What outcomes do adults with ADHD need? How can your clinical provision be most effective?
Open to all, this workshop is aimed primarily at clinical staff, commissioning staff and adults with ADHD. We are assuming that attendees accept that ADHD is real and needs treatment.
Founder and CEO of ADDISS, Andrea Bilbow OBE will open the conference with a realistic overview of the human cost of Adult ADHD from the perspective of an advocate supporting people with ADHD for over 20 years
Gary Sendall will share his moving and dramatic story of change having received his diagnosis in adulthood.
You will hear from members of the successful Adult ADHD Clinic in Croydon about how they operate their clinic for best outcomes for adults with ADHD.
You will hear about innovative, successful approaches in the volunatry sector, namely Ladders of Life which get people back into employment. Their project ADHD Works! is funded by the DWP
Phil Anderton Phd ex policeman and full time ADHD campaigner will chair the day but also talk about the link between ADHD and offending and what we can and should be doing to prevent this route for many people with ADHD.
People with ADHD deserve and are entitled to a good quality of life through better healthcare and exellence in the services provided for them.
