To live in a world where those affected by ADHD and their families, have access to early diagnosis, educational support, excellent management of their condition; support from Mental Health Services and other forms of social support.
Our mission is to:
- Increase awareness of ADHD.
- Support and empower adults and children affected by ADHD.
- Provide quality information on all aspects of the condition.
- To assure people they are not on their own.
- To signpost to other services that may be of benefit.
- We will continue to strive for better CAMHs support for our families and improve mental health services for our Adults with ADHD.
"I am no stranger to the demands and challenges of raising a child with ADHD and dealing with the associated difficulties. I know how isolating the journey can be. I know how it feels to be pushed from pillar to post in search of answers and to be made to feel I am somehow responsible for my son’s behaviour. I know how hard it is to talk to family and friends who never really understand. To feel frustrated as a parent and the pain that comes from not knowing how best to help your child.
For a long time our family dealt with these issues alone, but you don’t have to. ADHD West Cumbria can help. We may not have all the answers but we can listen, share experiences and hopefully point you in the right direction to get support."
