Who is René Brooks Anyway?
René Brooks is a late-life ADHD success story. After being diagnosed 3 times as a child (age 7, 11, and 25), she was finally able to get the treatment she deserved. René decided that her passion for helping others should be put toward people with this disorder who are struggling in silence or shame. She started Black Girl, Lost Keys to empower black women with ADHD and show them how to live well with the condition.
She has contributed to Kaleidoscope Society, ADHD Women’s Palooza, Mindfully ADD, and ADHD Essentials while also writing for Healthline and being a Patient Contributor for TEVA Pharmaceutical’s Life Effects.
