Russell Lehmann Biography

Russell Lehmann is an award-winning and internationally recognized motivational speaker, poet, author, and activist. He is known for his work in raising raw and transparent awareness about autism, mental health, and disabilities.

Harboring immense wisdom and insight, Lehmann has delivered TEDx talks, is a contributor for Psychology Today, and has a significant following on social media platforms like Instagram and LinkedIn. He also serves on numerous national boards, taskforces, and councils.

His impactful speeches and poetry have inspired and educated many about the nuances of autism and mental health, while also contextualizing the intersection of disability and society.

Lehmann shares his intense and painful personal journey of being diagnosed with autism at the age of 12 after 5 weeks in a lockdown psychiatric ward for severe OCD and phobias. These struggles, on top of a lack of support, compassion, and understanding led him to withdraw from the world for the next 15 years.

Lehmann's work has had a positive and life-changing impact on many, and his advocacy and activism have helped to increase understanding and support for individuals in the disability community.

Lehmann's talent lies in several areas, showcasing his diverse skills and abilities to deliver impactful, educational, and encouraging presentations that incorporate a range of emotions and perspectives, including significant elements of candor and humor. His spoken word poetry throughout each presentation presents a unique vehicle to the audience to provoke deep thoughts.

Lehmann's multifaceted talents have allowed him to reach a wide audience and make a significant impact in the numerous areas of inequity throughout society, and his ability to engage and inspire audiences showcases a talent for connecting with people on a deep and meaningful level.
