Marbella council supports people with ADHD
Marbella council showed its support for World Day of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) on October 27.
An event was attended by the councillors of Social Rights and Social Policies of San Pedro Alcantara, Isabel Cintado and Begoña Rueda, and included the reading of a manifesto by the president of the local Adahimar association, Vanesa Maeso.
The group thanked the council for its support and stressed the need for minors with ADHD to receive aid and subsidies for students with specific support needs managed by the Ministry of Education.
In addition, he has highlighted the importance of being considered a neurodevelopmental disorder and not a behavioural one, as proposed by the new Mental Health Strategy.
Cintado has affirmed that “it is essential that these children and young people receive all the support from the administration so that they can function normally in adult life” and has highlighted the work that Adahimar does.
A space in San Pedro has been made available to the association for them to carry out their daily work of care for people with ADHD and their families.
