49 Katherine Major, An Advocate for Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria | RSD, ADHD, ASD, OCD, support
Our guest today is Mrs. Katherine Major who is a co-administrator for the Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria Support Group on Facebook. She is an advocate for RSD, but she also advocates for adults and children with ADHD and ASD.
Mrs. Major is a graduate from the University of Mary Hardin Baylor and has been an Early Childhood Elementary Teacher for 23 years teaching mostly Pre-K and kindergarten. During her years of teaching, Mrs. Major received much mental health training and worked with children who have ADHD/OCD and Autism.
Katherine has been married for 21 years and has 3 teenagers in High School. She herself has ADHD/OCD, and she has two sons on the autism spectrum who have ADHD as well. Two and a half years ago, her son with significant high functioning autism and ADHD was needing more support as he transferred from Junior High to High School, so Mrs. Major has been staying at home to be more available for the needs of her family. During this time, she has been able to reflect, discover, monitor and grow personally from all that she is learning in her life.
In this episode, Katherine presents information from her perspective. She shares stories from her journey in managing her mental health, and she shares some resources she has collected along the way. Mrs. Major is very passionate and dedicated to learning all she can to make a positive difference for learners of all ages who struggle with mental health. Thank you, Katherine for your contributions and support in the RSD community!
