Q + A

Michelle Beckett - Founder ADHD Action; adult with moderate to severe combined type ADHD
Some parents may worry about what the future holds for their ADHD children, and if their condition may mean they never live up to their full potential. Michelle will share her own ADHD story and how she believes her neuro-difference is the key to her success.
She will share how you can nurture these unique strengths in your children, and how fully embracing her ADHD has given her purpose and helped her find that elusive self-esteem.  
Michelle is the founder of a new charity ADHD Action, started in October 2017 to transform how ADHD is viewed, treated and understood in the UK.

Michelle was diagnosed with ADHD age 44 in March 2017. She took to a political stage in September 2017 to highlight the huge societal and financial costs to not fully recognising or supporting ADHD in the UK. Since then she has successfully set up an All Party Parliamentary Group on ADHD, which recently lead to Parliament’s first ever formal debate on the subject. The Minister for Mental Health has now agreed on record to look into making the changes people desperately need.
She also works to educate and bust stigma, appearing on national radio and TV, in the press, writing her own articles and sharing her journey through talks up and down the UK. She speaks at NHS commissioner conferences, to GPs, teachers, parents, and in workplaces.
Michelle is a volunteer and runs ADHD Action on top of her day job.
