Richlands native pens children's book to bust stigma around ADHD

View descriptionShare

While the pandemic had many binge-watching shows in 2020, Richlands, North Carolina, native Jennifer Langston wrote a children’s book. Langston is a mental health therapist and clinical supervisor who now works with children, adolescents and adults. During her downtime away from helping clients navigate the full gamut of mental health disorders and tough life situations, Langston wanted to help educate children about attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. “Antsy Agatha” introduces the reader to a 7-year-old whose parents are always telling her to calm down. Agatha struggles to sit still and complete her schoolwork and does not understand what she is doing wrong. Fortunately, Agatha’s parents recognize that they need help. The author hopes her book will help more children and their families make sense of living with ADHD.
