Understanding ADHD – You’re Invited!
According to experts at Monash Health, we have witnessed a recent surge in referrals for ‘ADHD diagnosis’ since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
This is an issue of growing concern for everyone, including students at university, and the staff who teach and support them.
