Goals of the group

The goal of the group is to understand what it feels like to live with ADHD and find a sense of belongingness within the group. We aim to offer a safe and welcoming environment where members can openly discuss their experiences and challenges without fear of judgment. At the end of the sessions, we hope you take back some techniques for better executive functioning, positive social connections and an overall improvement of self-esteem.

Who is the group for?

The group is designed for adults of 18 years and above, who have been diagnosed with ADHD. You can talk with people who understand your experiences, share advice and insights and get perspective on challenges.
