Working through the ADHD module

Published: wellness

I first encountered Dr. Alok Kanoija (Dr. K in the common parlance of his audience) via his YouTube channel. I was immediately struck by his approach to mental health, which is to say that he's a psychiatrist who is also a gamer, and who talks about mental health issues in the context of gaming and gaming culture. I also really appreciated that he brings both his Western psychological training and his Eastern spiritual training to bear on his work. I've been watching his videos for a few months now, and I've found them to be very helpful and informative.

Some links to videos that I found especially valuable:

After watching and appreciating his YouTube content for a while, I researched more about his organization and learned about Dr. K's Guide to Mental Health. I was intrigued by the idea of a guided, interactive, online course on mental health, and I was especially interested in the ADHD module. I've been diagnosed with ADHD for a few years now, and I've been on medication for it for about a year. I've found the medication to be very helpful, but I've also found that I still have a lot of work to do to understand my ADHD and to learn how to live with it.

I purchased the ADHD module for $20 and have slowly worked through the whole thing over the last few months. It's a really nicely designed interface and system that gradually guides you through the videos and their accompanying resources and worksheets.

The ADHD module was really helpful for me along a few different axes.

Overall, I think $20 for the ADHD module is an absolute bargain, and I highly recommend it to others who are on a journey to learn more about their ADHD or the ADHD of a child or loved one.
