Join us to delve into the shifts in how we understand and address mental health and cognition. We explore the journey from traditional 'neurotypical' perspectives to embracing neurodiversity, exploring the full spectrum of neurological differences.

In the context of workplace therapy, we'll examine real-world applications and case studies, offering valuable insights and connections. Our team of experts will share practical tools and engage in storytelling, all aimed at creating a more inclusive workspace.

This is an opportunity to navigate the intricacies of mental health and cognition within the workplace, fostering inclusivity and supporting diverse cognitive experiences. Join us in shaping the future of mental health and therapy.
