Petition Introduce an Act of Parliament supporting ADHD adults and children (ADHD Act)

The charity ADHD Action calls upon the UK Government to pass an Act of Parliament that will broadly:
1) Place a duty on the Government to produce a broad strategy for ADHD adults and children which is kept under regular review.
2) A duty to produce statutory guidance to ensure implementation.

More details

There are currently many challenges to the UK ADHD community, which affects approximately 5% of children and 2.5% of adults.
Changes in areas below will ensure significant cost savings to public services, and improve quality of countless lives:
Health (including mental, sexual and addiction support)
Criminal justice (police, prisons, probation)
Work, pensions and benefits
Employment law
Local authorities (e.g. social services, homelessness)
Media (responsible reporting)
