Learn strategies to understand ADHD and ADD to support yourself, as well as your mental health.
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.
Who is it for?
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
Where does it take place?
This workshop takes place online via Zoom.
How do I join?
You can register on Eventbrite.
