Pop star Adam Levine has opened up about the challenges of living with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (Adhd) in a new public service announcement.

The Maroon 5 frontman says he was not surprised when he was diagnosed with the disorder after struggling to concentrate at school, and now he hopes his Own It campaign, set to be launched on Monday (24Feb14), will help other sufferers overcome the challenges of Adhd.

Levine tells Usmagazine.com, "When I was first diagnosed with Adhd, it wasn't a surprise because I had difficulty in high school focusing, And I think now, people notice my Adhd as an adult on a daily basis. When I can't pay attention, I really can't pay attention. If somebody approached me and said that anything that I said, helped them figure it out - or someone came to me and said 'I need help what do you suggest I do?' - the first thing I would suggest they do is see somebody. See a doctor about it."
