He realised that many of the struggles he faced in his professional and personal life could be attributed to having an undiagnosed learning disability. He now hopes to use this insight to help others with similar difficulties by advocating for better access to mental health support in academia and beyond.
Jones is also using his experience as a lecturer with learning disabilities to give presentations about how institutions can make more appropriate accommodations for students and staff with similar challenges. In his lectures, he sheds light on how undiagnosed learning disabilities can lead to frustration, failure, and isolation in the workplace.
At Bangor University, Jones has been instrumental in helping create an inclusive environment for students and staff with varying levels of physical and learning abilities. He is passionate about encouraging people to embrace their differences and empower themselves by seeking appropriate support.
Jones’s journey with ADHD has made him more aware of his needs and those of others with learning disabilities, giving him a unique point-of-view that he hopes will help create greater understanding among all members of society. His story is an inspiring example that it is possible to thrive despite difficulties.
