Today René Brooks is joined by Shannon Russell for a conversation about creating change in the mental health community. The pair talk about the pitfalls of black and white thinking when it comes to ADHD and identify many of the gray areas that exist. 

From the the good and bad aspects of the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) to the quest for a new name for ADHD, René and Shannon cover a lot of ground in today's episode; including why you shouldn't get all of your facts from Twitter or TikTok, and the importance of remembering that we're all still learning about ADHD.  

You can find Shannon on Twitter HERE or with the username @3TrackMind79, and on TikTok HERE

René Brooks is guest-hosting Distraction through December! René is an ADHD coach, writer and advocate who also has ADHD herself. From Black Girl, Lost Keys website: René Brooks is a late-life ADHD success story. After being diagnosed 3 times as a child (7, 11 and 25) she was finally able to get the treatment she deserved. René decided that her passion for helping others should be put toward people with this disorder who are struggling in silence or shame. She started Black Girl, Lost Keys to empower Black women with ADHD and show them how to live well with the condition.
