Abstract

This study focuses on the stigmatization of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder or ADHD. A cross-sectional survey was conducted and found that in this sample of young adults stigma acceptance was low and there was not significant difference of stigma acceptance between those medically diagnosed with ADHD and those not. Also, there was no significant difference between those reporting ADHD symptoms and those not.
