Canadian Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Resource Alliance (CADDRA)
CADDRA is a national, independent, not-for-profit association. We are the voice of doctors who support patients with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and their families. As leaders in the field, our members conduct research, treat patients and design practice guidelines for treating ADHD.
Created for adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD) and those affected by it (family, employers, health professionals, etc.), Totally ADD liberates people from the fear, shame, and stigma that can accompany this often misunderstood and misdiagnosed disorder. Through education, humour, and social interaction Totally ADD provides the tools and support people need to create a life they love.
Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA)
The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), founded in 1918, is one of the oldest voluntary organizations in Canada. Each year, we provide direct service to more than 100,000 Canadians through the combined efforts of more than 10,000 volunteers and staff across Canada in over 120 communities.
As a nation-wide, voluntary organization, the Canadian Mental Health Association promotes the mental health of all and supports the resilience and recovery of people experiencing mental illness. The CMHA accomplishes this mission through advocacy, education, research and service.
CMHA branches across Canada provide a wide range of innovative services and supports to people who are experiencing mental illness and their families. These services are tailored to the needs and resources of the communities where they are based. One of the core goals of these services is to help people with mental illness develop the personal tools to lead meaningful and productive lives.

Parenting with ADD:
Myth:I don’t have all the symptoms of ADHD, so I can’t have it.
Fact:You don’t have to display all the symptoms of ADHD in order to be diagnosed with it. For example, some people have the “inattentive” type of ADHD and may not show many signs of hyperactivity. Only a trained professional can determine whether or not you have ADHD.
