Support for Women

 

Q: I am new to adhd and was wondering if there are any online women’s groups or chat rooms? Or any other support for women like teaching seminars, etc.?

Well you are asking the right person this question! LOL I love support groups – it’s my whole life.

As a member of ADDA you have several options. Here is a link to the group page – https://add.org/adda-virtual-programs/

Here is a link to my private support community as well – https://the-adhd-enclave.mn.co/settings/landing-page

Depending on where you live, you might be able to find a local CHADD chapter as well. Here is a link to a CHADD “message board” type of thing – https://chadd.org/online-community/

Now, I want to be honest with you and tell you I am NOT a fan of the huge Facebook groups out there. Yes, they are free. But they are also full of misinformation and negativity.  

Social support is sooooo important, I congratulate you on your willingness to look for support. 

Keep in touch, let me know how you’re doing!
