Ableism, Labelism, and What Happens After Being Diagnosed with ADHD

Ableism, Labelism, and What Happens After Being Diagnosed with ADHD

René Brooks, our guest host of Distraction for ADHD Awareness month, is joined by John Hazelwood, an ADHD advocate and mentor for men’s health. The pair share a ton of insights about what they’ve learned since being diagnosed with ADHD including how to surround yourself with people who respect you, the importance of self-reflection, recognizing your strengths and the positives that exist within you, and why now is the time to share your story with others.

Distraction welcomes Black Girl, Lost Keys blog creator, René Brooks, as our guest host for ADHD Awareness Month! René is an ADHD coach, writer and advocate who also has ADHD herself. From Black Girl, Lost Keys website: René Brooks is a late-life ADHD success story. After being diagnosed 3 times as a child (7, 11 and 25) she was finally able to get the treatment she deserved. René decided that her passion for helping others should be put toward people with this disorder who are struggling in silence or shame. She started Black Girl, Lost Keys to empower Black women with ADHD and show them how to live well with the condition.
