No ADHD support groups in your area? Start your own, I did. Here’s how you can start, run and promote a support group. I wish I had read these articles before I decided to start my adult ADHD support group. I list several by category, you definitely don’t need to read them all, but different things will resonate with different people so choice is good.

Also sometimes there are non profit resource organizations that provide low cost training on how to start, run and promote support groups. I took a grassroots facilitator course at the Self Help Resource Association of BC here in Vancouver (a year after I started the group) now it’s called PeerNetBC  and it was great training on how to start, run, troubleshoot and help publicize a support group. 4 separate days at $25 a day, what a bargain.
