Fight the stigma. Ask for help, be there for others. It can be hard to do, but believe me it's worth it.

ADHD, like all mental illnesses, has a stigma. I know because I contributed to it. Since receiving my diagnosis, though, I am now more aware of the issue than ever before. I’ve only been on this side of the battle for a few months, now, but it’s already so abundantly clear to me that we HAVE to do better, America. We have to start a conversation, open our mindsets, and implement CHANGE.

SHARE YOUR STORY
The stigma only exists if we all stay in the shadows. 20% of us live with mental health conditions and everyone is going through something, so there's nothing to be ashamed of. Whether you share publicly or a with few loved ones, you'll build yourself a supportive community and inspire others to do the same.
If 20,000 of us share our stories in 2019, we can end the stigma by 2020.
