October is ADHD Awareness Month

Since it’s the first day of ADHD Awareness Month, I’d like to encourage you to learn more about ADHD this month and share what you learn with others.

You can start today at 12:00 PM ET, by attending my online Keynote in the 9th Annual ADHD Expo. In my session, you’ll learn how to  embrace a strength-based approach that says, “If I get the right help, I am a champion in the making.” 

Register for FREE now ... and say good-bye to chronic, unexplained underachievement and hello to a whole new, purposeful and exciting life!

Most people who discover they have ADHD, whether they be children or adults, have suffered a great deal of pain. The emotional experience of ADHD is filled with embarrassment, humiliation, and self-castigation. By the time the diagnosis is made, many people with ADHD have lost confidence and blame themselves.  It’s important to remember, however, that ADHD is NOT your fault or the effect of bad parenting.

Learn more about overcoming “low self-esteem” and why ADHD need not be a disability in

Mental Illness Swam In My Genes…

 Photos by Noam Galai

Giulia Rhodes, The Guardian recently interviewed Dr. Hallowell about his Memoir.  In her article, Mental Illness Swam In My Genes…, she asked him why he wanted to become a psychiatrist. Dr. Hallowell replied:  “I wanted to become a psychiatrist because I wanted to understand my people in particular and crazy people in general.”   The “selfish desire”, he says, was always to save his family: “There was a drive to repair families, repair my own – though it was too late for that, of course.”

What Makes a Little Child Decide to Become a Psychiatrist?

When Dr. Edward “Ned” Hallowell was eleven, a voice out of nowhere told him he should become a psychiatrist. A mental health professional of the time would have called this psychosis. But he took it in stride, despite not quite knowing what “psychiatrist” meant. Years later, the voice turned out to be right and he did indeed become a psychiatrist.

Dr. Carole Lieberman was intrigued by Dr. Hallowell’s story and interviewed him for her show “Dr. Carole’s Couch.”  Listen to her interview with Dr. Hallowell’s as he shares his story in “What Makes a Little Child Decide to Become a Psychiatrist.

If you’d like to learn more about Dr. Hallowell, read his Memoir, Because I Come From A Crazy Family The Making of A Psychiatrist.
