ADHD in Clinicians and Clients of Color in People of Color in Psychology

ADHD is a common neurodevelopmental disorder that can affect people of all ages, races, and ethnicities. However, research has shown that people of color and women are disproportionately underdiagnosed and undertreated for ADHD. Consequently, some individuals do not get diagnosed until they are an adult. Part of it may be systemic lack of support or resources and lack of understanding normative cultural behaviors. As mental health clinicians are not immune to mental health conditions, there are those who live with ADHD and at times fear disclosing or seeking support for it. In this episode, Dr. Shauna Pollard talks about her personal journey with ADHD and how it has led her to create a consultation group for BIPOC clinicians with ADHD. Additionally, she discusses resources and uses of current technologies to help her ADHD clients.
