When were you diagnosed with ADHD?
In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, Dr. Dawn Kamilah Brown, “The MD with ADHD” joins us to share her advice on what to ask and disclose during your ADHD diagnosis appointment. She also explains what she wishes everyone knew about what’s next after leaving their ADHD diagnosis appointment. We cover the value of a full spectrum care plan: including your doctor, therapist, coaching, behavior management, medicine, ADHD-friendly strategies, and mental wellness care.
Late diagnosis of ADHD is increasingly common as we learn more about ADHD and how it shows up in adult women. Dr. Dawn knows well, as she was diagnosed well into her journey to becoming a psychiatrist. As she vulnerably opens up about the grief of a late ADHD diagnosis, Dr. Dawn shares how she picks herself up when she’s feeling low and how she balances being a multi passionate multiple business owner.
