Most people haven’t heard of neurodiversity. Last week I wrote an article about my own brush with bipolarism and how mental illness can actually be a positive experience. It seemed to strike a nerve. It fast became one of our most popular articles and was kindly reposted by The Drum (where it’s had over a thousand shares). Thank you to everyone who spread it around and for all the wonderfully positive messages I’ve received. However, what I really want people to think about is bigger than mental illness. It’s about embracing every form of mental variance. The term for it is neurodiversity.
