Too Much of a Good Thing? - A Conversation About Hoarding

One persons trash may be another persons treasure, but how do you know if you have too much of a good thing? 

For many people ADHD and clutter go hand in hand.  Its easy enough to get caught up with too much stuff and too little organisation, particularly if you enjoy collecting things and have difficulty letting go.   In this session we will discuss the difference between disorganisation, collecting and hoarding. We will identify ways to assess whether the volume of clutter is getting out of hand and some strategies and resources to help you take the first steps towards a safer and more comfortable living environment.
