ADHD Malta as member of ADHD Europe would like to share with you the Young Adults deceleration. Adult Clinics should be able to offer ADHD transition services to young people where they can continue to obtain the care and multimodal interventions that were available to them as children and adolescents or to establish proper interventions to those newly diagnosed both in Malta and around Europe.

Kindly follow this link and support the deceleration by signing it at the bottom. Please also share to reach as most people as possible.

During our Summer BBQ held end of July we launched the ADHD Youth group. This group is targeted for teenagers between the ages of 13-18.   We met with some great youths who will start meeting every month to mingle, chat and have fun! Our youth leaders will help in organising the events so should anyone be interested to join just send an email to adhdmalta@gmail.com.

At present some of the group are participating in art lessons while some are enjoying themselves in the Youth chat sessions.  We also had our monthly meeting this week which started off with a game of bowling.

Next…..we are getting pretty busy in organising two ADHD Coaching courses.  These will be held between the 5-29th November 2016.  More information will be distributed soon so stay tuned!  If you are already interested to join these courses send an email to adhdmalta@gmail.com

We are proud to present to the public the first video on ADHD in Maltese.  This was only possible thanks to the funds we received from the SIS Fund.  We thank all those who participated in the production of the video which we are sure will help us to create more awareness. There are also more videos to watch in the series ‘Stejjer ta’ ADHD’ so go and check out our You Tube channel and don’t forget to subscribe!!

October is ADHD Awareness month and for this occasion Dr Nicholas Myttas came to Malta on the invite of our committee to give various lectures about ADHD.  Meetings with Psychiatrists, medical staff, medical students, head of schools, teachers, and the general public were held.  He was also present during the Mental Health Expo organised by the Commissioner of Mental Health.  We thank the honorable Minister Evarist Bartolo and Dr Anton Grech for accepting our invitation to meet Dr Myttas and their response for future collaboration with Dr Myttas and ADHD Malta.  We also are very grateful to the H. E. the President of Malta Mrs Marie Louise Coleiro Preca for offering Dr Myttas to stay at her palace in Attard.

Also a new fund has been allocated to ADHD Malta by the Community Chest Fund 2015 for our project to provide a course for ADHD Coaching.  More details soon.

    1. Dear Louisa, he may start by doing an appointment with a psychologist to identify and get a proper diagnosis. S/he will guide him accordingly. In the meantime we can offer support both to him and your family. Send us your details by sms on 79706364 and we will get back to you shortly.

  3. Hi yesterday me and my husband went to a counsellor. At the end of the session the counsellor suggested that my husband seeks a phsycologist as she thinks that he might suffer from ADHD. We both are working very hard to keep our relationship going but his anger issues, his impulsive behaviour is not helping at all. Can you please suggest any group sessions that I can attend so I can learn how to deal with it.

  5. Good afternoon, I have a boy of almost 5 years going to year 1. I always had suspicion that he is a little hyper. He doesn’t stay sitting down for more than 15 minutes and when he is doing something he get annoyed after a few minutes such drawing and Writing just 5 letters. When he get annoyed he starts screaming and throwing the things.He talks a lot and always on the move. This last year and a half, I also noticed a lot of anger in him. When you tell him something that he does not like, he starts shouting and showing a lot of anger that even he starts to throw the things that he finds infront of him. When I talked to the pediatrician when he was young he said that he is not hyper and when I talked to our family doctor a few months ago he said that he Doesn’t have any problem but he has a lot of energy that he needs to get out. I’m still worried cause infront of other people that he doesn’t know he is like an angel but when you tell him something no or wrong, he is like a switch and changes completely. With whom I can start to see if my son has a condition or not, or if there are any tests he can do. Sorry for being too long. Thanks in advance. Sharon
