Adam Levine, lead singer of Maroon 5, and Shire have announced the launch of “The Own It Project,” designed to encourage young adults and adults who are taking responsibility for their Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) – and owning it – to motivate others to do the same by entering their story for a chance to become the next “Own It” spokesperson.
“The Own It Project” is part of an overall initiative called the “Own It” initiative, which was introduced in 2011. This overall initiative aims to motivate those who were diagnosed with ADHD when they were younger – and thought they outgrew it – to get reassessed by their doctor if their symptoms are still affecting them as young adults and adults. The overall initiative and “The Own It Project” are endorsed by the Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA), Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) and made possible by Shire.
“The Own It Project” encourages adults with ADHD to tell us the story of when they realized they needed to own their ADHD. By submitting their story to www.OwnItProject.com, adults enter a national contest for a chance to win a prize package and be the next “Own It” campaign spokesperson.
