ADHD Awareness Week has kicked off across Metro Vancouver.
Pete Quily leads the non-profit Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group.
His group is putting on activities throughout this week in eight Metro Vancouver cities.
It started Sunday with an information booth at Vancouver's Roundhouse Community Centre.
"We have twenty six libraries in eight cities: Vancouver, Surrey, Richmond, Burnaby, Coquitlam, North Vancouver, Maple Ridge, and Aldergrove, displaying ADHD books and posters."
Quily says there's lots of stigma about the behavioral disorder, and he wants to dispel any myths people may have.
He says the United States has had ADHD awareness day or week for a number of years.
Vancouver City Council declared ADHD awareness week last year and Quily says council will be declaring it again this week.
