Fairfax Adult ADHD Support Group

Online event

This Adults with ADHD support group will meet on Sundays via Zoom.
At this time it seems we are all going through some changes in our lives. Change can be very unsettling, especially for those of us with ADHD. So for now this group will focus on where we are at this time, and possibilities for where we'd like to go in the future. We maintain a friendly and supportive atmosphere, as we discuss our common ADHD ups and downs.

Any questions? Please send a message and we will get right back to you!

DC Adult ADHD Success Group Topic: A.D.H.D and Holiday Stress!

UPDATE: This support group is meeting online through Zoom.

Hi Everyone! This week, in addition to checking in about any existing or ongoing challenges, we will be discussing Holiday stress, specific to those of us with ADHD. I will be giving you all tools to help with emotional regulation and the other executive function deficits, so you can deal effectively instead of feeling overwhelmed!

ALSO, PREPARE FOR THE BODY DOUBLE EXERCISE! 🎉 This is where we all choose a task that we have been putting off to work on for 10-15 minutes, then check in about it in the discussion portion. Decide what you’re going to do before the meeting and let us know in your check in. It works, it really does!

This support group will meet the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month. We will have a mindfulness exercise and a different ADD/ADHD related topic each time to lead the discussion. Looking forward to seeing you there.

*Please note that at this time this is for adults with ADD or ADHD only. If you are a parent or family member, there are groups available just for you and those groups have been thriving in the DMV area for some time. I’m hoping we can give them a run for their money!
