The Importance of ADHD Support Groups

ADHD support groups connect you with other ADHD adults or parents of ADHD children. Learn how to locate or start an ADHD support group, and find out how you'll benefit from joining one.

ADHD Support Group Etiquette

0611_FEA-ParentAdvice Save chatter for the right time. Some ADHD support groups schedule casual social periods along with group sharing, while others provide opportunities to mingle only before and after the official meeting.

Balance personal disclosures. Observe one or two meetings before jumping in. Sharing too much makes other members uncomfortable -- sharing too little makes you seem standoffish.

Be supportive. Aim for a three-to-one ratio -- three responses to others’ comments for every comment you make.
