We are a peer led support group based in Brighton UK for adults (18+) diagnosed or actively seeking diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) established in May 2011.
We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of every month offering support, coping strategies and raising awareness of adult ADHD. Run by adults with ADHD for adults with ADHD
Why come to our support group?
Living with ADHD affects every part of life and at times can be isolating. Coming to a support group to share coping strategies and meeting like-minded people who are dealing with the same issues as you is supportive and motivating. Come along to meet new friends, share information, discuss diagnosis, getting access to services and have fun!
What to expect at the meetings?
The group is a relaxed social get together of around 10 to 20 people from all walks of life. On arrival you will be welcomed by one of the organisers and you can talk as little or as much as you like. We understand it can be daunting to come along to a group for the first time and we want to make you feel as comfortable as possible, if you have any questions or worries please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to help you. All meetings are confidential, no judgements are made and no issue is too delicate. No appointment necessary please feel free to just turn up.
What is ADHD?
ADHD is a medical condition that results from faulty neurotransmitter re-uptake systems in the brain. In a nutshell the brain is ‘more asleep’ and seeks a state of ‘high stimulation’ or ‘hyperactivity’ in order to keep the brain awake.
The symptoms of ADHD vary considerably among individuals including classic extroverted symptoms of hyperactivity and agitation, to more introverted symptoms such as daydreaming and anxiety.
Notable famous people with ADHD include Michael Phelps, Jim Carrey, Rory Bremner, Billy Connolly, John F. Kennedy, Thomas Edison, Howie Mandel, Justin Timberlake, Steven Spielberg, Albert Einstein, and Will.i.am.
