ADHD Support Groups Resources
While we Adult ADHD Coaches work over the phone and can coach you from anywhere, you need to meet Doctors, Psychiatrists, and Psychologists in person.
ADHD Support Groups can be useful to find those local people to diagnose ADHD and prescribe ADHD medication or do cognitive behavioural therapy for ADHD or deal with co-morbid conditions like depression, anxiety, addiction, etc.
They’re also useful for meeting and connecting with your fellow ADHD adults or parents of ADHD kids live in person, whom you don’t have to explain what ADHD is or justify why ADHD a legitimate condition vs a space alien, lizard people and big pharma conspiracy:)
You can also learn about how to manage ADHD, and finding local ADHD resources.
Here are some resources to help you find your closest ADD support group, or if there’s none near you, to start one.
