Menopause, the straw that breaks the camel’s back?

Ming Jun Kuck (MJ) (PhD Researcher)
Menopause is a significant milestone in life, marking the end of a woman's reproductive years. This inevitable life stage can be accompanied by various menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, brain fog, and sleep disturbances, which patterns are unique to every woman. One of the most challenging aspects of menopause is the impact it can have on mental health. Women may experience anxiety, depression, and other mood changes during menopause, which can have a significant impact on their quality of life.
In this presentation, we will explore the specific stages of menopause where women may experience heightened stress and anxiety and discuss the potential protective factors such as resilience and social support that may help women ease through the menopausal transition.

The Science of ADHD

Dr Eric Hill (Biologist & ADHD Coach )
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition that affects the way people behave. People with ADHD are often restless, finding concentration difficult and may act impulsively. In this discussion we, as two academics with ADHD, will discuss our research and debunk the myths about the disorder. We will discuss how ADHD can present differently in women than men, and the neuroscience of neurodiverse conditions.
Our talk will allow the audience to gain an increased awareness and understanding of an ADHD brain. We will include advice and tips on how to navigate a neurotypical world.
*Unfortunately due to unavoidable circumstances Dr James Brown will no longer be able to speak at this event*
