    Aim: The aim of this study is to create awareness and impart knowledge about attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) among teenagers and its prevalence in our society. Materials and Methods: It is the questionnaire-based online survey which was taken by 150 participants using the link SurveyPlanet. Participants were mostly teenagers who are under the age group of 12–19. Result: Through this survey, it is proved that nearly 50% of the participants were not able to focus well in their daily activities. They were under great pressure and impairment due to this disorder. Healthy mind and good lifestyle changes might help them to get rid of ADHD. Conclusion: In common, people with good mental fitness are recognized and given appreciation. However, the proper way to analyze this disorder is lacking. It has been analyzed that parents whose children were affected with ADHD are not aware of their child’s condition. Only about 56% use medications to prevent this disorder and the rest are not even trying to avoid it since they cannot analyze the problem or defect within their mental world. If they feel confident, they can improve their skills gradually, return back to their normal situations, and lead a happier life.
