She has a background in creative arts, and has worked to introduce young people to the benefits of creativity. About Mekkin Mekkin is our Lead Peer Support Guide. As an autistic and ADHD person, she had her own struggles with secondary school and university. Now she uses her strengths and experiences to help support and guide neurodivergent young people, as well as create educational content on behalf of Uncommon. Session 1: Building confidence Our introductory session encourages young people to explore the positive aspects of their neurodivergence and identify their own unique strengths. Session 2: Managing Stress Using a light-touch approach, young people learn more about the science behind stress, develop a greater awareness of how stress shows up for them, and start to brainstorm what they can do about it. Session 3: Navigating Friendships Our final session encourages young people to think about what makes a good friend and the different ways we can show our friends that we care.
