Topic Using Non-Verbal Communication to Talk With Your ADHD Child
When I was a child mental illness carried a terrible stigma Optimind Review with it. It was whispered about in conversations of older people and was made fun of by most. Folks did not understand it, and made it sound spooky and made one hope they never became mentally ill.

If they got to come out of the institution they had a label for life and were talked about with great apprehension.
