WHAT CAN I/WE DO FOR NATIONAL ADD AWARENESS DAY?

Individuals
~ Print out and distribute the
ADDA Awareness Day Kit
~ Locate and contact the mental health centers in your area. See if they can put something up on their website or place flyers in their waiting rooms.

Groups
~ Place an announcement on your website
~ Do an "email blast" to your e-list
~ Sponsor a workshop on ADD
~ Sponsor a fundraiser and donate the proceeds to ADDA.
~ Ask your local library if you can set up a table to hand out information.
~ Ask to participate in local health fairs where you can pass out fact sheets
~ Try getting your local newspaper to write an article about AD/HD and/or Awareness Day.
~ Ask your Chamber of Commerce if your group can have 5-10 minutes at their next meeting to announce National ADD Awareness Day and hand out information.
~ See if the local cable company would place an announcement on their free community bulletin board
~ Ask the radio station to do a community service announcement on Awareness Day.

Tara, great info, I'll try and see what I can do here in my city. God knows there's no real resources here in this BFE place for ADD!

I was looking for organized events

I don't mean to be a party pooper but I was hoping that, especially at this late date, that there were already organized events. I live in New York. I suppposed I can call the Mental Health Society here to see if they have anything planned. I did order buttons from the internet for my family to show our support. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

I was thinking about something we could all do at the same on that day. Sometimes radio stations across the country will all play the same song at the same time. People all beep their horns in the cars at the same time.

I bet we could come up with some interesting ideas.
