Welcome To The Show!
We are conquering the world one manic episode at a time!
I know that "neurodiverse", "mental variances", and "mental health" may sound scary, but...
NEVER FEAR! SUPER MANIA IS HERE!
With this show, we will be discussing all types of neurodiversity and mental health topics and showing the world that neurodiversity, while challenging, is a difference, not a deficit.
We are here for support, education, removing stigmas, and celebration!
Neurodiverse, or neurodivergent, simply refers to a diagnosable difference in how the brain processes information. We celebrate these differences, as opposed to viewing them as deficits, as does the originator of the term, Australian Sociologist and Author, Judy Singer.
Each person in this community has a different manifestation, different challenges, and different gifts ("super powers"). Whether it is a manic phase allowing you to work at super-human speeds, Autism giving you the gift of an unique perspective or super analysis, Dyslexia driving creativity, or any of the other valuable neuro-diverse traits, it is truly remarkable what this community contributes to the world.
Here, we embrace neurodiversity and know that while it may be a journey, it can lead to some pretty incredible contributions and innovations!
Please, join me and my incredible guests on this wonderful journey, and feel free to reach out to me with any questions, needs, or to join the show!
I am your Host, Katherine McCord. In my day job, I am a Bipolar entrepreneur fighting to rid the world of discrimination in the hiring process through my companies, Titan Management and Titan ATS. Titan ATS is specifically designed by neurodiverse folks to help other neurodiverse people find work effectively and without facing discrimination in the application process. Without my manic phases, I do not think that I could have come so far or continue to grow so much.
As Super Mania, I am working to create positive associations with neurodiversity and mental health via podcasting, speaking engagements, and public appearances.
I am a proud neuro-diverse woman, and I want to share our superpowers with the world!
We're back for Season Two!
