Neurodiversity MB has no affiliation with the agencies, websites, or resources outlined below. Please exercise due diligence when seeking out information online or when seeking services for yourself or your child.
I work with your families, schools, and social services agencies. I advocate for children to be fully and effectively supported, promote neurodiversity awareness, and educate communities and professionals about neurodiversity.

The Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba (MDAM) offers services for youth (age 9+), teens, and adults.
While ADHD is not a mood disorder, many people with ADHD also struggle with co-morbid anxiety and depression.
Many people with ADHD also experience mental health struggles, either due to ADHD itself, or due to other co-morbid conditions.
The Learning Disabilities Association of Manitoba (LDAM) offers programs for children, youth, teens, and adults.
LDAM also hosts an in-person Adult ADHD support group.
Note: ADHD is not a learning disability, and the LDAM does differentiate ADHD from LDs. However, many people with ADHD also have co-morbid LDs.
