In the fall of 2011, BCMHSUS assembled a Provincial ADHD Task Force, which consisted of a broad membership, including representation from various ministries and professional sectors within BC, health care professionals, parents, and school professionals.

The mission of the Task Force was to work collaboratively to develop strategies which would improve access to evidence-based care in ADHD for children and youth across the province. The Task Force has developed a series of algorithms and recommendations  related to the diagnosis and management of ADHD in BC. Dissemination and uptake of these algorithms and recommendations is expected to contribute to increased capacity of health care professionals, school professionals and families with regard to the management of ADHD in children and youth. Moreover, the cross-sectoral nature of the recommendations is intended to facilitate coordination between stakeholder groups, thus promoting a collaborative care model and contributing to improved outcomes for children and youth with ADHD
