Living with ADHD

by Greisy Hernandez

Mental health in young children is often dismissed and there are not a lot of resources especially in underprivileged communities. This project specifically, focuses on the life of a 10 year old boy with ADHD. Young children don’t understand their mental illnesses and they try to live a normal life. I have seen this firsthand with my younger brother, Abraham. He voluntarily shared his experience from the perspective of his home life, social life, and school life. He also shared what has helped him overcome struggles that come with ADHD.
