A support group is a group of people who meet to give and gain support from others with similar needs. For many, a support group reduces the feeling of isolation and creates an opportunity for discussion. By sharing ideas and information with others, many people are able to find new ways of coping. Most people who attend feel that the emotional support they both give and receive is of great benefit.

ADHD WA Support Groups are for members only.  This is to ensure fairness to those who have purchased a membership and is a show of our commitment to our members.

If you would like to attend the support group and are not yet a member, you can become an ADHD WA member here.
