Out of the Ordinary: Embracing Neurodiversity & Mental Health
In a time where belonging, connecting and mental health have been top of mind as we navigate our new world, we unveil why learning about the intersections of neurodiversity and mental health matter. Science and technology have proven that we cultivate life changing solutions, and we continue to rely on science and technology to help us navigate our new norm but how can science and technology play a part in inclusion? Having an understanding of how brain-based inclusion and neuroscience are interconnected and how we can embrace neurological differences while disrupting the mental health stigma is of utmost importance. Throughout this session, we explore a 3-step journey of awareness, acceptance, and allyship to create inclusion and belonging for neurodiversity and break down the barriers of mental health.
- Understand why the intersections of Neurodiversity and Mental Health matter in our connected world.
- Learn how to embrace neurodiversity through a 3-step approach of awareness, acceptance, and allyship.
