Sign the @UKParliament petition for an @GovUk #ADHD Act
ADHD Richmond wants an All-Party Parliamentary Group formed to drive a lobby to get the Government to recognise and support children and adults, who have this neurodevelopmental condition, with an ADHD Act in England.
The Act would lead to an ADHD strategy which would set out a programme of action the Departments of Health and Education, and other government departments, should take to improve the lives of those with ADHD.
ADHD Richmond wants legislation put in place which would:
• make it easier to get a diagnosis by Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and Paediatric departments
• give compulsory training for teachers and practitioners
• enable local councils and health services to write strategic plans to ensure that those with ADHD get the help they need
• help the justice system to reduce the disproportionately high prevalence of those with ADHD within the prison population.
