World Federation for Mental Health

These guidelines, developed by the World Federation for Mental Health, provide journalists with information for reporting on ADHD with understanding and respect for those who live with the disorder. When emotional and behavioural disorders affect young people, it is particularly important to be sensitive and aware of the facts. The World Federation for Mental Health is committed to improving access to care and services for people with such conditions, with World Mental Health Day in 2003 dedicated to the emotional and behavioural disorders of children and adolescents.
