She is a pioneer of the Mental Health Movement, and a nationally recognized #1 best-selling author, ADHD coach, public speaker, and professional mentor.
Dr. Brown was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) while in her final year of her child psychiatry fellowship program. Because of this, she personally understands the potential impact of this chronic, debilitating disorder not only on affected individuals but their families as well. Without quality management, this disorder can cause academic and work difficulties, poor self-confidence, and strained relationships. Dr. Brown believes that mental health professionals are essential in providing balanced and supportive information about ADHD, ensuring individuals and their families receive proper management recommendations that are effective.
Dr. Brown is an advocate for innovative resources on positive parenting and healthy family relationships. This passion is clearly evident on the public stage, where she speaks to communities around the country to promote awareness about ADHD and other mental health conditions. She has been featured on local broadcasts such as “Great Day Houston,” ABC13, CBS KHOU 11, NBC 2 and has also been a recurring expert on the nationally syndicated, “The Tom Joyner Morning Show.” She is actively involved in grassroots and service organizations and has presented on both the local and national level on many topics in child psychiatry. She has given over 100 didactic lectures to residents and child psychiatry fellows, and has participated in several community mental and medical health awareness projects. One of her most gratifying achievements occurred when she helped establish a health clinic to provide convenient and affordable access to primary mental health services for children and teenagers in Houston.
Dr. Brown actively commits to extending her expertise and time as the mental health expert for the well-known publication, KIDFASH Magazine through her informative articles and live segments. She also educates the community via her Facebook Live weekly broadcasts with a mission to de-stigmatize mental illness and dispel myths about the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions. She establishes active discussions with her followers and provides insight on common and sensitive mental health topics. Her followers extend worldwide.
