Facts for ADHD - Presentation -HELP!

Hi guys! I’m currently doing a presentation on ADHD and how it should be less stigmatized and more people should educate themselves on it/// mental health in general.
I began to lose focus and I’m so terrible with looking for statistics, (this is againist people who say ADHD Isn’t a real disorder)
Would you guys be able to help me find stats on the following:

  • the rate of suicide in ADHD’ers when not medicated
  • any significant case studies of people (say parents) refusing to let them be medicated and the effects on their mental health.
  • proffesionals speaking about medication and how it is safe.
  • And any other relevant stats or case studies.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Oh! And I’m based in Australia, anything stat related to AUS would be great!
