Laura Wallis: Unpacking neurodiversity and mental health as a freelancer

In this week’s episode, Orla and Ben are joined by Laura Wallis, a freelance writer and speaker with expertise in women’s healthcare, neurodiversity, and mental health.

We find out how her passion took her from working on contracts with the NHS to setting up the organisation ‘Debating Mental Health’ which delivered speech and debate coaching to young people with mental health support needs, to improve their confidence, self-esteem and help create an accessible community.

We also discuss what neurodiversity is, why it’s vital to be aware of it, how freelancers can access supportive communities and we learn Laura’s top tips for public speaking.
