Adam Levine, the Voice of ADHD
For those of you who aren’t already enamored of rock star Adam Levine (is that anyone on the planet?), the Maroon 5 lead singer has just launched a project that’s sure to win the hearts and minds of those with an interest in ADHD.
Levine has partnered with the pharmaceutical company Shire to launch “The Own It Project,” an effort to encourage adults with ADHD to take responsibility for their attention issues and share their stories with others.
Those wishing to participate in the project can submit their story about when they knew they needed to own their ADHD. Participants are entered into a national contest with a chance to win prizes along with the opportunity to be the next “Own It” campaign spokesperson. In addition to receiving an autographed guitar from Levine, the winner will be able to choose between two prize packages, one focusing on technology and the other built around professional appearance. Both packages include sessions with an ADHD coach.
“The Own It Project,” says Levine, “is important because it encourages adults, like me, who are owning their ADHD, to become advocates and tell their story. I hope that this effort will help people realize the importance of owning their ADHD.”
Submissions must be sent to OwnItProject.com by June 6, 2012.
