  Chilled and Considerate Parent Bootcamp Delivered by Dr Einstein, the Parent Bootcamp is a 90 minute, online course intended to help you understand and alter responses to worry and uncertainty. The program does not timeout, so stop and start as you please, allowing time to pause and reflect. ​Through a series of exercises, audios, and videos, this course will provide techniques to handle you and your children's worries. You will reflect on how, and why, you have developed your natural response to uncertainty, and later, be given the tools to change it. Additionally, the exercises will allow you to assess how others in your life, i.e., partners, children, etc., respond to uncertainty and how their responses may differ from yours.

EPIC (Empowering Parents In Crisis) EPIC (Empowering Parents In Crisis) is a NFP Organisation led by parents with lived experience of teens in crisis. EPIC was founded in 2021 as a result of the isolation and powerlessness experienced when parents and carers were faced with young people facing mental health challenges including ADHD or choosing challenging behaviours. EPIC is a safe, non-judgmental community building support platform offering peer-peer support, education and sharing through an inclusive cultural lens. EPIC acknowledges that it is a frightening, lonely and very worrying period for parents/carers and families when their child is facing challenges. Our team seeks to support community recovery and capacity building for parents/carers and families of young people by providing a supportive community that is focused on well being and connectedness.

Global Neurodiverse Families Sarah Devotion Garner I help neurodivergent people and families, especially those not living in their home countries, transform their lives and thrive through ADHD coaching, education, and advocacy.  Neurodiversity describes the idea that the ways that people’s brains work cause them to experience and interact with the world around them in many different ways. There is no one ‘right’ way of thinking, learning, and behaving, and differences should not be viewed as deficits. What helps young people with ADHD the most is having an accepting, supportive person in their lives. I want to help parents be that person for their own kids, and also for themselves - especially if they have a late diagnosis. Together, we will work to develop and increase your self-discovery, self-awareness and acceptance, identify existing barriers to reaching your individual or family goals (educational, personal, professional), and create strategies to remove those barriers and instead build bridges to support you to make progress and enjoy life's journey as you accomplish your goals.
