The theme of this year's ADHD is "Advocate scientific diagnosis and treatment, improve learning ability", aiming to further improve the society's awareness of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (commonly known as ADHD), promote the establishment of standard diagnosis and treatment process mechanisms, and help children with ADHD improve Learning ability.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is abbreviated as ADHD, commonly known as ADHD.
This year’s ADHD Care Week has been comprehensively upgraded on the basis of the previous two Care Weeks.
On the one hand, the "Youth Mental Health Guardian Program" will be launched simultaneously, which aims to call on all sectors of the society to support the mental health of young people and strengthen public diseases.
On the other hand, Professor Xiaoyan Ke from Nanjing Brain Hospital, director of the World Health Organization Children’s Mental Health Research and Training Cooperation Center and Professor Ke Xiaoyan of Nanjing Brain Hospital, will share the preliminary results of the ADHD survey of school-age children in Chinese cities launched last year.
The results will be published in the future, becoming the country's first multi-center ADHD survey report in seven geographic regions.
In addition, online and offline free consultations and a number of popular science activities will continue.
Another highlight of the project is the further upgrade of last year's "integration of medicine and education" model.
This model encourages doctors to enter the campus, helps teachers and parents understand ADHD symptoms, and provides them with the knowledge and skills for self-assessment and medical follow-up.
Guo Meijian, Secretary of the Party Committee and Chairman of the China Youth Development Foundation, introduced: “During the second Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Care Week last year, we launched the “Youth Mental Health Campus” project to provide psychological counseling and psychological counseling to children across the country.
Public welfare services such as health knowledge science popularization.
Nearly 300 campus science popularization lectures have been held in more than 30 cities across the country, covering nearly 200,000 families, which has effectively promoted the construction of the social psychological service system, and focused on cultivating children’s self-esteem, self-confidence, and positive attitude.
And this year’s Youth Mental Health Guardian Alliance Program has assembled more social forces, aiming to focus on elementary schools, give play to the educational demonstration role of team-teaching collaboration and the integration of medicine and education, focus on school functions, and focus on prevention And solve the mental health problems of teenagers in their study and life.
According to a 2017 meta-analysis, the prevalence of ADHD in children and adolescents in China is about 6.
3%, and there are about 23 million children and adolescents in China.
Due to the lack of sufficient disease awareness and professional medical staff, according to the 2015 "China Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Prevention Guidelines" data show that the current rate of consultation for ADHD patients in my country is very low, less than 10%, and only less than one-third The patient receives formal scientific treatment.
In addition, ADHD is a common neurodevelopmental disorder in children.
It is a chronic disease that affects life.
It is common in school-age children, but 70% of children have symptoms that persist into adolescence, and 30%-50% of children have symptoms that persist into adulthood.
Children and adolescents with ADHD mainly show distractions that are not commensurate with their age, reduced attention span, excessive activity and emotional impulse regardless of occasion, and are accompanied by cognitive impairment and learning difficulties.
Without scientific diagnosis and treatment, the condition will have a serious impact on the children's academic performance, thereby reducing their self-confidence and interpersonal skills.
Director of the World Health Organization Children's Mental Health Research and Training Cooperation Center and Professor Ke Xiaoyan from Nanjing Brain Hospital shared the country's first seven geographic regions and multi-center "Survey on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in Chinese Urban School-age Children" at the kick-off meeting As a result, she said: “China’s ADHD has a heavy burden of disease and a low rate of consultation.
In daily life, teachers may spend more time with their children than parents, and they have the opportunity to discover the children’s psychological or behavioral abnormalities at the first time.
The cognition has become particularly important.
Last year we organized and participated in 52 scientific research activities on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) across the country.
We will organize and publish reports in the future to bring the correctness to families of children with ADHD in China.
