Query: Seeking tips from licensed mental health practitioners on navigating an adult diagnosis of ADHD. Specifically looking for re-learning and establishing systems that *actually* work for individuals and practicing self-compassion along the way. Some guiding questions:

  1. What are the challenges folks often face when receiving an adult ADHD diagnosis? What concerns usually drive individuals to seek a diagnosis as an adult in the first place?
  2. How can a newly diagnosed person start unpacking their diagnosis, and what practices for self-care and self-compassion can be helpful during this time?
  3. Are there certain stigmas around ADHD readers should be aware of, whether they are neurodivergent or not?

Also open to hearing personal strategies (for creating systems and self-care) that have worked for you if you are a neurodivergent individual

Requirements: Licensed mental health experts and practitioners, preferably those who have worked with neurodivergent/ADHD individuals or have personal experience with neurodivergence
