225: The Politics of Neurodivergence - Jacinta Dietrich

This episode mentions mental health conditions and may not be suitable for all.

Jacinta Dietrich is a neurodivergent and bisexual writer, editor and podcaster based in Melbourne, Australia.  She is an autistic ADHDer with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and a family history of suicidality, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Jacinta uses her lived experience and family history to advocate for better understanding of neurodivergence and mental health in a variety of communities and industries.  Jacinta is the founder, producer and co-host of Differently Brained, an own voices podcast where each fortnight they interview a neurodivergent guest or a guest who has experienced mental health challenges to encourage people to share their story and champion the different ways we all exist in the world. Differently Brained has been featured on Apple Podcasts as an 'emerging podcast to watch' and regularly chart in the Australian Health & Fitness and Mental Health categories. A seasoned and accomplished writer and spokesperson, Jacinta is passionate about disability representation across multiple communities and industries and is committed to breaking down the stigmas, stereotypes and misconceptions.

We discuss:

1. What does it mean to be neurodiverse?

2. How do you know if you are neurodiverse? Beyond the more known cliches of difficulty with socialising/eye contract or being great at academics at an early age?

3. How do you navigate the world with your range of conditions such as ADHA and CFS? Give us a sense of your challenges and perks!

4. How do you view the recent rise in diagnosis for both children but also adults with say ADHA or Autism Spectrum? Is it we are more aware or is there some new ways this is coming to the fore?

5. How can business adapt to accommodate and foster a neurodiverse workforce and be truly inclusive? Any examples?

6. Takeaway: What is your final message for us on The Politics of Neurodivergence?
