Support groups have been shown to be really helpful in assisting people with ADHD or parents of children with ADHD to manage.

Sharing information and strategies can be excellent for helping affected people to cope with the challenges, and of course the acceptance and understanding one finds at a support group is highly positive and a relief for many who often suffer in silence.

Meeting and talking with other ADHD adults or other parents of children with ADHD, particularly those with older children, may have solutions to help you solve the problems you're facing at this moment.   That can give you hope which his invaluable.   You realise, often for the first time, that you are not alone.

Educating yourself about ADHD and the treatments and strategies available is paramount and many support groups provide professional speakers and information sessions to do just that.

In the drop down menu you will find several existing support groups in various areas around NSW/ACT.  However, if you can’t find a group in your area you could perhaps think of starting your own group!  Northern Beaches ADHD Support Group will be pleased to give you some tips on how to do that.   Please use the contact form to contact them direct for further information.

If you run or know of any other support groups not listed, please contact Northern Beaches ADHD Support Group on nbadhdsupportgroup@hotmail.com to be added to the list.
