Who says ADHD is BS?
We, the psychiatrists, psychologists, medical practitioners, researchers, and others listed below are alarmed at the worldwide drugging of tens of millions of children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
We know that some of the children labelled ADHD do have real problems and need help. However, we also know that ADHD is an unhelpful, unscientific, vague label and that so-called 'medications' do not address these problems and frequently cause significant harm.
