Some of the protagonists of the new short film Shine a light Understanding ADHD, which was launched on October 31.
The video Shine a light – Understanding of ADHD has been published. This short documentary is about what ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is all about, both personally and clinically.
The initiative aims to help young people and adults diagnosed with or suspected to have ADHD and their family and friends to better understand the condition. It also hopes to raise funds for more research to better understand ADHD.
"Understanding the nature of the problem reduces stigma and guilt, and it reduces self-stigma and self-inflictedness," said Prof Eric Taylor, child and adolescent psychiatrist at King's College, London.
This video coincides with the final day of the International ADHD Awareness Month and was created through the collaboration of four EU-funded, international consortia of researchers studying ADHD and its origins – MiND, Aggressotype, CoCA and Eat2BeNICE – and 4QFilms.
