Hattiesburg Clinic Connections and Psychology & Counseling recently hosted the 19th Annual Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Related Concerns Conference in Hattiesburg with the mission of “educating and inspiring the community to better diagnose, treat and care for those with ADHD and coexisting disorders.”

The conference included sessions from behavioral and mental health experts on topics ranging from ADHD, dyslexia, behavior management, autism, stress management and more. Attendees also had the opportunity to network with a range of professionals across different specialties as the event returned in person for the first time in two years.

“This was our 19th year to host the conference, and we are so glad we could be together in person again this year,” Jonathan W. Shook, MD, a pediatrician at Hattiesburg Clinic Connections, said. “We are glad to speak to parents and educators, as well as health care workers and mental health care workers, about how we can help our students and other individuals with learning differences, mental health differences and challenges. We appreciate the opportunity to increase awareness in the community and equip people with more tools.”
