Adult ADHD Melbourne is a support group for adults with ADHD, their family and friends, and health professionals working in the area. The purpose of the Adult ADHD Support Group is to provide peer support, shared resources, information, and advocacy.
We are a peer support group, rather than a professional-led group, but we do welcome any professionals who would like to come as a participant.
We meet up on the second Saturday of each month at Docklands Library, 2:00-4:00 pm. We send out a reminder email to members also, so do join up! Some months we have guest speakers, other months are a social catch up and sharing of ideas.
We also have a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/AdultADHDMelbourne
