Poppy Ellis Logan
Poppy is the founder of the #AttentionUK campaign, which fights the stigma and misrepresentation of ADHD in the UK. #AttentionUK seeks to raise awareness of the barriers and challenges facing adults with ADHD, and calls for better media representation of people with ADHD using media guidelines and political resources.
Poppy is internationally recognised as an expert in the field of adult ADHD; she won the Digital Advocate Award from the European Federation of Neurological Associations, sat on the NICE Committee developing the Clinical Guidelines for the treatment of ADHD, and sits on the Youth Task Force for Mental Health Europe. In July 2019, she was also listed as one of the Top 50 Influential Neurodiverse Women of 2019 by Women Beyond the Box.
Poppy is currently working as an Associate Lecturer in Mental Health at Middlesex University. Here, she is also a Practice Lead for the My Care Academy project, which aims to improve health education and awareness using digital platforms and resources. She enjoys using this opportunity to raise as much awareness about adult ADHD as possible amongst healthcare and social work academics as well as future generations of nurses, mental health workers and social workers.
