“I wish more people would understand that it’s a lot deeper than squirrel.” This is how Kyrus Kennan Wescott, mental health humorist and ADHD Advocate talks about ADHD and the perception of it in our culture. After receiving his diagnosis in 2022, Ky set out to bring levity into mental health conversations to make a very difficult conversation a little bit easier.
Listen for more squirrel thoughts, an interesting analogy involving microwaved fish, and how he’s working to remove the stigma around mental health in the Black community.
