Virtual Peer Support Groups and Workshops
You already know about ADDA’s famous Conferences… and between Conferences, many of you connect by attending Webinars, stay in touch through ADDA’s Website or by subscribing to ADDA’s monthly electronic newsletter, the ADDA Insider.
All those are great but what if you’re not “tech savvy”? Or, more likely, what if you’ve had it up to here with email? You’re suffering from “inbox overload” and you’d much rather just TALK TO SOMEONE!? If you’re lucky, you attend an adult ADHD support group, but what if you don’t? What if you can’t get to the meetings? What if they don’t fit your schedule? How do you connect?
Sometimes you just want to pick up the phone (without feeling like they’re wishing you’d “call someone who cares!”) ADDA has the answer.
After the peer support call is over I am going to hang up and cry. This has been so helpful. I have never spoken to anyone else with ADD. To hear all of your voices – intelligent, funny, fun people. The advice I got here has changed my life, thank you.

Would you like to meet with other adults with ADHD without leaving the comfort and privacy of your home? ADDA Virtual Peer Support offers ADDA members* the opportunity to connect with peers for support in a safe non-judgmental environment.
I am so inspired by the conversation, talking with people from all over the country with the same issues as me. I have felt like I was stuck on stupid for 50 years since I got my ADD diagnosis so late in life. After this call I feel not so alone.

I was able to join in on tonight’s call and listen. I was really happily surprised to hear how supportive and informative everyone was. People were respectful and they were honest. I’m so glad I tried it. It helped me realize I’m not the only one who feels the way I feel in many situations described. I look forward to joining in on another call. Thanks.

Start Your Own Support Group
At ADDA, we believe in the power of community. If you’d prefer a face-to-face support group with people who live near you, we have information to help you start or maintain an adult ADHD support group.
Begin by taking a look at the ADDA Support Group Manual. It contains a wealth of information for anyone thinking about starting a local support group, as well as practical information about maintaining established groups. The manual is written for both professionals and individuals interested in starting their own self-help groups. It even contains helpful information about handling some of the sticky situations that can undermine the success of any group.
