Welcome to ADDR's Inform & Support Groups in the Pacific Northwest
Does ADHD affect you or someone in your family, classroom, workplace or community? Then you've come to the right place. All of our Pacific Northwest Inform & Support Groups are open to everyone without a charge.
ADDR's ADHD Groups Help you Make Connections
Find Your Peers
If you think you have ADHD or are diagnosed with ADHD, just talking with like-minded others helps. Yes, there are really others who think just like you do. Others who've forgotten keys, anniversaries and bills. Others who haven't had the chance to live up to expectations; whose partners often don't understand. An ADDR ADHD Inform & Support Group brings us together to educate ourselves, to face the problems of ADHD together and to share experiences and advice. Together, we have a chance to learn how to cope better and feel less isolated. You'll be among friends, members of your own tribe who think just like you.
What's It Like To Attend?
You attend an ADDR group in person. Your group is facilitated by volunteers who are professionals in related fields or who have experience with ADHD and coexisting conditions. Members also offer practical advice and tips. The topics vary and the structure varies from an educational one with a presentation to one that emphasizes emotional support and shared experiences or both.
• To Develop a clearer understanding of what to expect with ADHD • Get practical advice about treatment options • Compare notes about resources • Talk openly and honestly about your feelings
You'll Have A Chance
• To feel less lonely, isolated or judged • To develop a sense of empowerment and control • To improve coping skills • To help reduce distress, depression and anxiety
Join us. Come to any of our evening group meetings in the Pacific Northwest. You'll find a variety of interesting speakers and topics for adults, partners of those with ADHD and parents of kids with ADHD.
We are a bit different. We are independent. We provide authoritative, accurate and science-based information. We believe in the power of direct human connection. You'll likely get a real person when you call us.
