Wendy Richardson has devoted the last decade of her 30 year career in mental health to treating people with AD/HD and co-occuring addictions, eating disorders, and behavioral addictions. She is inspired and motivated by her personal and professional passion to help others whose lives have been affected by AD/HD and addiction. Wendy believes that educating others about AD/HD through her writing, international speaking, and trainings, are huge steps towards smashing stigmas, reducing shame, and helping people get the treatment they deserve.
She is the author of two books: When Too Much Isn't Enough: Ending the Destructive Cycle of AD/HD and Addictive Behavior and the Link Between ADD and Addiction: Getting the Help You Deserve. She has written numerous articles, and contributed chapters on AD/HD and co-occuring addictions in books focusing on criminology, and women with AD/HD. She is featured in the following program available at FMS (click the title for program specifics).
