What we're about

The San Fernando Valley Chapter of Children & Adults with ADHD (CHADD of San Fernando Valley) exists to improve the lives of people in our community who are impacted by ADHD. We offer resources, information, and education as well as free support groups and speaker meetings most every month throughout the Valley. Our goal is to build a strong, educated, ADHD-savvy community in the San Fernando Valley. Our chapter welcomes all who are affected by or involved in supporting ADHD - parents, adults, family, educators and treatment professionals.

Founded in 1987, CHADD is a national, non-profit, tax-exempt [Section 501(c)(3)] organization providing education, advocacy and support for individuals with ADHD and their families. With support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CHADD operates the National Resource Center (NRC) on ADHD and publishes a variety of education materials to keep members and professionals current on research advances, medications and treatments affecting individuals with ADHD. These materials include CHADD.org, The NRC Library, Attention magazine, Attention weekly, a free electronically mailed current events newsletter, as well as other publications of specific interest to educators, professionals and parents.

Adult ADHD Peer Support Group - San Fernando Valley

The Legacy Center

ADHD SPACE! is an adult peer support group comprised of adults 18+ who identify as having ADHD. The group offers a safe, supportive, judgement-free environment to share about the challenges, frustrations, and successes of living with ADHD. Some of our members were diagnosed as children and others only recently. Some choose medication and others don't. Regardless of any differences, we come together united by the challenge of living with ADHD and the hope to improve our lives. Here you're able to talk directly with other adults who are living with ADHD - and can share the kind of practical insights, tools, and strategies with one another that only come from firsthand experience. While there is no set fee to attend, we do depend upon your voluntary donations to rent space and provide materials, so a suggested $5 - $10 donation per meeting is greatly appreciated to offset costs. -- Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) and CHADD of San Fernando Valley (CHADD-SFV) do not endorse any product, service, publication, medication, or treatment.
