The Opening Ceremony of “Youth RElift 2021: Generation ADHD”
Sammy Leung reflects back his own experience for attention to adult hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Raising awareness for youth & adult to ADHD (ADHD) activity with the theme of “ADHDmysuperpower” officially opened this weekend (Saturday 3rd April). We issued a comprehensive questionnaire to investigate the state of ADHD in adolescents and adults in Japan, the Philippines, Taiwan, Mongolia and Hong Kong.
Speech by National President, Senator Winnie Yeung:
‘with about one patient for every 33 adults, this problem will not go away if there is no positive change or treatment in childhood. Lack of concentration, more impatient behavior, etc.’
“Youth RElift 2021: Generations ADHD” mainly targets young people aged 18-40, and to find more neglected adult patients; to educate the public, especially the new generation, how to face it together.
