ADHD Unmasked: My Mental Health Journey (with Leo Ballantyne)

The Menfulness Podcast

06-10-2023 • 1時間 32分

Trigger Warning - Suicide/grief loss

Content Warning - Swearing


We've got the lovely Leo for you in today's conversation. We discuss what ADHD has meant for him, both now since his recent diagnosis but also how that's factored into understanding his life as a whole. We hear about how it's affected his relationships and education as well as his feelings of alienation in a world not always geared up for neurodiverse people.

As always we get honest insight into the mind of one of our members, as well as hearing how he copes, what's coming next for him and as always, what's at the top of his playlist.
