“I’m writing to express our appreciation for Mike’s recent workshop, in which my wife and I participated. Good insights and confirmation, enhanced our understanding of our relationship and some of the issues we have to handle, and gave us realistic and practical ideas on how to make it work better. Mike’s enthusiasm and good will are infectious, and he works hard. Good man.

Thanks,

Tom”

    Mike, I wanted to thank you for such a great session yesterday. I called in with no expectations and was pleasantly surprised to learn what a great group of folks were on the call, and how beneficial this was for me. I learned so much in just an hour of listening to everyone. Hopefully I can take this information and use it to help my partner. Thank you! Look forward to the next session.

      Hi Sharon,

      I’m glad you are looking into support groups. They are a fantastic resource for adults with ADHD. If you’d like to meet with other adults with ADHD without leaving the comfort and privacy of your home, ADDA Virtual Peer Support groups (https://add.org/adhd-support-groups/) offer ADDA members the opportunity to connect with peers for support in a safe non-judgmental environment. At these groups, you’ll find people who are FOUNTAINS of knowledge and resources.

      ADDA does not offer local support groups. If you prefer to meet in person, CHADD has an excellent database with groups all over the US (and some beyond). Please visit this page for CHADD’s support group database: http://www.chadd.org/Support/Directory.aspx?state=111111111

      I hope this helps!

    I am looking for a spousal support group near Suffolk, VA 23434. My husband has ADHD and I need help dealing with it as it is becoming more than I can handle alone.

      Some people feel strange about going to a support group initially but of all the folks we refer to support groups that actually go, almost all of them say they are so glad they went. You’ll find that many other individuals are going through the same thing you are going through. It’s an amazing feeling to be around other people that know what you’re going through and it will help you feel less alone and more empowered.

      Thank you for your interest in and support of ADDA!
