Do you or a friend have ADHD, Bipolar, Anxiety or you’re neurodivergent? Or experience any of these yourself?
Not sure how to express and share how to best work with you? Or if you work with someone who has shared these things with you, do you want to know how you can better support them?
Today, I am joined by my client, friend and marketing strategist, Monica Schrock (she/they), who has ADHD, Bipolar and General Anxiety Disorder.
We’ll be sharing tips, scripts and tools you can use to work with others who are neurodivergent, or if you are neurodivergent yourself — what you can do.
We live in a world of capitalism and productivity, the reality is that not all brains work the way capitalism wants them to. That’s the only reason they’re termed “disorders.” We have diverse brains and that’s a beautiful thing, but it means there needs to be more understanding of what that means and how it impacts us.
And instead of being judgmental, be curious. Monica and I share what scripts and tools you can do so we can all understand and work together.
We also talk about our own grandmothers. I share how my grandmother had schizophrenia and bipolar, and how Monica’s grandmother was Bipolar 1.
Please note Monica and I are not mental health professionals and therapists, please seek a therapist or mental health if you need support.
What We Cover in This Episode:
- The impact of marketing on mental health
- Understanding the phases of bipolar disorder, including depression, mania, and stability
