Here is the video and also the slides from our Talk on Emotional Health at ADHD Richmond May 24 2017 – Dr Jo Steer & Dr Amrita Basu and here is the Guide to self-harm they mentioned




June 1:   Parent/Carers in Richmond and Kingston are offered free access to a 2 hour post-diagnosis information session which runs every month for a maximum of 5 people so parents have time for discussing personal situations confidently as well as covering the material. We are receiving nothing but praise and gratitude. Here are a few examples:

“We found the session with you most informative, supportive and reassuring.

“Perfect training. So helpful. I now feel fully informed to talk to the school SENCO and discuss what adjustments my son may need to reach his potential. Thank you, I feel empowered”

“Now I understand SEN Code of Practice and what that means for my daughter. Useful contacts and videos were given. I now feel I have help chasing up the report of my daughters formal diagnosis. Also I feel more positive and understood just chatting to others and being told its normal adhd behaviour. “

Come and get some great advice from this ADHD Richmond & @NHS England post-diagnosis session for parents/carers. If your child has recently had a diagnosis you will benefit greatly from attending one of these meetings. These post-diagnosis information sessions are open to‏ Richmond AND Kingston parents  Our ADHD advisor, Val Ivens, runs them. Book your FREE place via
