ADDA’s International ADHD Peer Support was built on the foundation of understanding. We understand the frustration that comes from others being incapable of understanding why you got side tracked, or why you are late, or why you are unorganized.
The group is here to provide support in a safe, non-judgmental environment, where everyone will be able to listen to your problems and most importantly; relate to them.
Our mission is to offer trust-worthy information and community to adults with ADHD around the world.
ADHD affects people of all races and all cultures in all countries around the world. ADHD does not recognize borders. Well, neither will ADDA. We offer virtual peer support to adults with ADHD wherever they may be.
This is a forum for mutual acceptance, understanding and self-discovery with peers. Participants are encouraged to share their experience, strength and hope.
This group is open to all ADDA members we especially invite those who are living in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
You don’t have to figure out ADD/ADHD on your own, talk to people just like you. Do you have trouble with procrastination? Losing your keys? Forgetting? So do we.
We are here to listen to your troubles and provide support. We look forward to welcoming you to our community.
We will be using ZOOM for this meeting, accessible by laptop, tablet, smartphone, and landline. By using ZOOM we can avoid phone charges if you use your computer or the smartphone APP.
Group Leader Information
Kian Najmechi – Bio
Hi. My name is Kian.
And I get the struggle.
I went through my entire school life hearing the exact same thing. “Kian has so much potential, but he doesn’t use it.”
It wasn’t until I went to university that I went to a therapist and was recommended to a psychiatrist.
It was in 2016 that I began my own ADHD support group through an online forum and we all began meeting weekly on skype.
I realised how valuable the group could be for myself and for others who suffer from the disorder.
I started such a group because I wanted us to talk about our issues without the other person devaluing our plight. My own parents made it seem like ADHD was a non-issue, while all of those within the group understood how difficult it was to find that motivation, or how easily we were distracted.
We all found it reassuring that we could talk openly about our struggles without fear of being judged.
I recently was discovered by ADDA and have been given a tremendous opportunity to reach out to others and show them that you are not alone. That we are here to be supportive and that we understand your plight.
