In Binders Full of ADHDers, Part I, I called for action, not lip service, to social change during newly re-elected President Obama’s 2nd term. Those of us with ADHD need pro-active measures on all fronts, including political, to see the changes necessary to make our lives better.

Make sense, not war

One area of concern, in both Canada and the US, is the notion of the “war on crime.” Shouldn’t we be waging a war on ignorance?

ADHD is considered the most treatable of all mental health conditions, yet study after study has shown that those born with ADHD often find a “Go to Jail” card in their back pocket around the time they turn into adolescents (especially if they’re hyperactive boys).
