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
9 February Support Group meeting in the Activities Room at The Dock Library – topic for discussion and ideas is Communication Hacks for ADHDers.
9 March – picnic in the park as the weather should be lovely! Venue/park to be advised.
As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, we will be screening the award winning documentary “ADD & Loving It?!” at our October meeting. The video and following Q&A will be facilitated by our own Dr Tim Edwards-Hart.
