At October, we understand the importance of promoting resilience and overall wellness, especially when it comes to mental health. With this in mind, we are excited to bring you a session exploring "The Intersection of Neurodiversity and Mental Health."
Neurodiversity refers to the natural variation in the human brain regarding learning, attention, mood, and other mental functions. It encompasses conditions such as ADHD, autism, dyslexia, and more. This session will delve into the relationship between neurodiversity and mental well-being, shedding light on how to navigate and thrive within this intersection.
Our experienced moderator, Lyr Weltsman, is a dedicated child, adolescent, and family counselor with specialization in cognitive-behavioral therapy, anxiety, family and parental counseling, and mood disorders. Lyr's expertise in these areas will provide valuable insights and practical strategies for individuals and workplaces to better understand and support neurodiverse individuals in promoting mental well-being.
Join us to gain a deeper understanding of neurodiversity, learn effective strategies for promoting mental health, and explore how to create inclusive and supportive environments in the workplace and beyond.
Remember, while October is here to provide educational and supportive content, it's important to seek professional assistance if you have clinical needs. If you require support, please seek help from a licensed healthcare provider.
We look forward to engaging with you in this insightful session, and together, we can continue to foster a mentally healthy and inclusive environment for all.
