ADDISS Conference 2013 – Hearts and Minds
The 11th International ADDISS (Attention Deficit Disorder Information and Support Service) Conference took place in Liverpool in October 2013. As usual, the event brought together professionals, families and individuals with an interest in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). There is always a buzz at ADDISS conferences and this one was no exception. Alongside the serious talks and practical tips, there was also a lot of fun. You get a real sense of community when you have a group of people facing similar challenges. Many adults with ADHD came along for the first time and there was a lot of positive feedback about the ‘community’ feel of the event. The talent show enabled us to look at the lighter side of life, especially with all those people in their onesies! The conference, held at the historic Adelphi Hotel, started on Thursday 10 October and finished on Saturday 12 October. The conference hall was full with ADHD service users, doctors, teachers, partners and carers. It was a great space for networking and meeting attendees.
