Let's Talk About ADHD

This casual yet informative gathering is designed for everyone - whether you have ADHD, know someone who does, or are just curious to learn more. Our expert speakers will share insights and personal stories, shedding light on both the challenges and strengths associated with ADHD. The event will feature an interactive panel discussion, spoken word performances, stand-up comedy, and an art exhibition.

 

We'll also provide information on support resources, diagnosis paths, and strategies for managing ADHD. This is a unique opportunity to connect with a supportive community, learn practical strategies, and embrace the diverse world of ADHD. Everyone is welcome, and we encourage educators, care workers, social workers, employers, and anyone interested in understanding ADHD to join us.
