It’s estimated that up to 1 in 5 people in the UK could be neurodiverse. With this number, it’s surprising how little awareness and understanding there is.
Our main aim as a society is to be a place that neurodiverse students can come to and be open about the things that affect them. It’s also a place to come to for specific peer to peer support and feel validated in things that neurodiverse people face. We also aim to support friend making with a variety of social events, and to raise more awareness and understanding about neurodiversity in general.
Having a diagnosis is NOT a requirement to join. We’re supportive of everyone no matter if they’re just starting to suspect they’re neurodiverse, or if they’ve been medicated and diagnosed for years. Similarly, as there’s no limits to conditions we’ll consider neurodiverse, we’ll leave it for you to decide if this society is helpful to you or not. Non neurodiverse students are also welcomed for both supporting peers and educational purposes.
