Today, Shaun is joined by Dr. Perry Mandanis, a medical doctor with over 35 years of experience in helping children and adults improve their symptoms of ADHD. Dr. Mandanis has a unique perspective on mental health, having reinvented himself after a spinal cord injury left him wheelchair-dependent.
We dive into the science behind ADHD and how it manifests from childhood to adulthood. Dr. Mandanis sheds light on why girls and women are often under-diagnosed with ADHD and the challenges parents face when trying to diagnose their children. We also discuss the impact of trauma and anxiety on ADHD and explore various treatment options available for those living with the condition. Dr. Mandanis stresses the importance of self-compassion and shares practical tips on how to practice it. Join us for an insightful conversation with Dr. Mandanis as we gain a deeper understanding of ADHD and how to manage it effectively.
