This is a weekly peer-support meeting centered around ADHD awareness and personal sharing, while acknowledging the identity intersections of mental health, gender, and sexuality. We hope to provide a community for women and non-binary people who identify as LGBTQIA+ or Queer. Facilitators’ primary aim is to promote discussion and manage time.

Format

  1. Group Introductions 6:30pm EST
  2. Facilitator Introduction of Topic with Reflection Questions
  3. Individual Responses
  4. Closing + Announcements, (extra time = Open Social Discussion)
  5. Final end at 8:00pm EST

 

Topic examples:

  • Personal: Emotional Regulation, Shame, Masking
  • Interpersonal: Communication, Self-Advocacy, Boundaries
  • Health: Daily Routines, Fatigue, Relaxation
  • Executive Function: Career, Productivity, Burnout

Our community is open to women and non-binary people who identify as LGBTQIA+ or Queer. This provides a safe space for personal sharing, but not a specific conversational focus.

Struggling with ADHD can feel oppressive and shameful. We are striving for communal queer empowerment through self-acceptance and personal growth—Join us!
