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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com

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.
