ADHD & Women: Misunderstood and Misdiagnosed

ADHD was once believed to be a disorder occurring predominantly in boys/men, often leaving girls and women to suffer. The diagnosis ratio of boys to girls is around 3:1, although in adults this is more likely to be closer to 1:1. However, despite this important statistic, research has shown that women are more likely to be underdiagnosed with ADHD than men, and instead misdiagnosed with another mental health condition. Often women feel extra pressure from society to perform in their role.  

This talk will dispel the myths and give a fantastic insight into ADHD in women, including how hormones can affect the condition. From dopamine dips, hits and myths, female ADHD presentations, and the neuroscience behind it, join us in demystifying common gender-based misconceptions of this condition. Gain advice and practical strategies on how to navigate a neurotypical world as a neurodivergent person. Designed and delivered by Oxford University’s Dr Anneka Tomlinson, you will gain an evidence-based and clinical understanding of ADHD in women and an insight in the potential future research.

Doors open at 6.45pm, talk starts at 7.30pm - come down early to grab a good seat!
