ADHD & Mental health awareness

For various reasons, I’ve been feeling a little anxious lately. Well, no. More like a rollercoaster of ups and downs.

Are you in the same car?

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

Usually, this refers to an effort to reduce the stigma around mental illness.

ADHD is far from a mental illness, so what does this awareness mean for ADHDers?

I think it means shining a light on invisible hardships. You see, unlike a broken arm or the flu, with an invisible difficulty / disability / condition; people often suffer in silence.

It can be hard to ask for help. It can be hard for others to understand your limitations and it can be harder to treat yourself with the kindness and compassion you deserve.

So I wanted to share a few of my favorite resources that I think might be helpful in practicing a little self-compassion when you have ADHD.

This is the ultimate book on adulting while struggling, written by a therapist, mother with ADHD and someone who has suffered through depression.

Short, entertaining and very helpful videos on tips, tricks and insights into the ADHD brain.

Fun illustrations on Instagram that simplistically show you how to successfully navigate emotions at work and in life.

Facebook page ( & magazine, community & site) dedicated to strategies and support for individuals and families living with ADHD.

Are You an IMAA?
