Deal or no deal star and comedian Howie Mandel is the spokesman for Adult ADHD Is Real, a new public awareness campaign for adults with ADHD. Here's the website of the campaign with Howie's talking about having Adult ADHD, the TV and radio ads and adult ADHD screener and other information.

I blogged about it with a video of Howie being interviewed by Sidewalks TV on how ADHD has impacted his life here

The campaign is sponsored by the ADHD Coaches Organization (ACO), Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA), CHADD, and Shire.

Lack of awareness of ADHD and stigma I believe are the 2 biggest problems for adults with ADHD. I hope a lot of people see the ads and hopefully people with ADHD will help pass the word around about the campaign

I for one am teary eyed over this. For the longest time I have wished someone with fame would come out publicly to bring notoriety to Adult ADHD. Many people have so many misconceptions about ADD/ADHD, and they never fully understand how it affects us.

Mr. Howie Mandel I, as a 4 year veteran of the US Navy salute you with my fullest respect. You are now a personal hero to me, and I am so grateful for your actions. Also, on a side note, Deal or No show.
