ADHD Awareness Month is an international movement to educate the public and create greater awareness and understanding about attention deficit disorder. “ADHD Wellness Center & Dr. Dawn Psych’s MD unified mission is to empower individuals with ADHD to discover their full potential in life by promoting awareness and providing balanced and supportive information about the condition, ensuring individuals and their families receive proper management recommendations that are effective. We provide the highest quality of care to our patients in an environment where they feel supported, validated and well informed.”
ADHD Wellness Center, Dr. Dawn Psych MD and the ADHD Awareness Coalition will recognize ADHD Awareness Month throughout October 2018 by joining with millions of adults, families, and children living with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, as well as healthcare professionals, psychologists, and other thought leaders, to promote greater awareness about ADHD.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, a neurodevelopmental disorder, affects millions of Americans regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status. Recognized widely by medical organizations as varied as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), ADHD causes significant impairment at work, in school, and throughout the daily lives of those affected by it.
Ruth Hughes, former CEO of CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), referred to current research, saying, “ADHD has many faces. It affects people of all ethnic backgrounds and all socioeconomic classes. This is an important month when our community comes together to rally around the cause of ADHD awareness.”
Throughout the month of October, Dawn Kamilah Brown, MD of ADHD Wellness Center and Dr. Dawn Psych MD is scheduled to discuss various topics relating to ADHD at several public speaking events in Texas and Illinois. She will also complete on-air and news media interviews to further promote the awareness of ADHD and address questions from the community. Her Facebook LIVE schedule and podcast show will highlight ADHD topics during the entire month, covering an array of matters ranging from “Where does ADHD come from,” to “ADHD’s impact on relationships,” to “Is it possible to outgrow ADHD,” and many more. Dr. Brown is on a mission to bring awareness, provide education and transform what the world recognizes as a dis-ability, into an Amaze-Ability,™ a term she defines as a place of “rewarding possibilities!”
Dawn K. Brown, MD established The ADHD Wellness Center after discovering there were very few community and medical resources to support the ADHD community. Although her focus involves the medication treatment of ADHD and its co-morbidities, she also believes to have optimal control of the disorder, ADHD coaching, effective Parent Management Training, and other forms of behavior management are equally important.
As a mental health strategist and expert, Dr. Dawn Psych MD brings a fresh & new perspective on addressing mental health concerns, with a focus on creating positive experiences for individuals and families. Additionally, her passion extends to her pursuit of promoting awareness and education about mental health conditions that can be effectively managed, where individuals can function at their optimal level and lead fulfilling lives.
