What is Thriving with ADHD/ADD?

Thriving with ADHD/ADD is a series of virtual workshops hosted by Britt Belyea, one of our Mental Health Nurses, and Doriana Marrello, one of our Clinical Counsellors.

Workshops are open to students with ADHD and/or ADD, students with executive functioning challenges (time management, procrastination, motivation, impulsivity, etc.), and students who have family, partners or friends with ADHD/ADD symptoms.

What will I learn?

  • Understand the six different areas of executive functioning and how ADHD/ADD may impair each area: attention, action, task, information, emotion, effort
  • Start to reframe what it means to have ADHD/ADD from a negative personality flaw to a source of strength and resilience
