Support and Education
If you can join a group, we recommend it. Realizing that you're not alone and that others are facing common challenges is a tremendous step towards building knowlegde and coping skills. Change may come slowly, but sharing the journey with others who have "been through the ropes" can help "lift your burden" and point the way towards new options.
- ADD Resources offers 6 support groups in the Puget Sound area for adults and parents.
- Puget Sound CHADD groups
Google It! Try Support, your city, and ADHD (Because groups are often held in nearby suburbs, you might try your whole state instead of a specific city to find nearby groups, for example: your state, adhd & support (maybe include parent or adult)
Another option is 2-1-1 - a United Way project- is a directory of health and human service programs. If your state offers the service, you can just dial 2-1-1 and get help. To find it as an on-line directory format, see: http://www.211us.org/status.htm Choose ADHD or Learning Disabilities as the key words and you may find organizations, support groups or even providers in your area.
If you have a support group, list yourself in our directory!
CONNECT! Create a Web-based community to set up in-person events. New format with good on-line support to help you manage your site! Look for sponsors cover the monthly fee (a local coach?) Let us know if you have any luck with this- Please list your group in our directory once you get it up and running.
