ADHD Resources

I had the privilege of being invited to attend the first meeting of the Chino Hills Adults with ADHD Self-Support Group on January 26. There was a good turnout, and the facilitators did an excellent job of helping everyone feel welcome (thank you Jess, Maria, and Bobby). They presented information on positive aspects of ADHD and jobs utilizing the strengths and minimizing the challenges of individuals with ADHD. Participants were encouraged to submit questions on index cards (which enabled them to be anonymous), and the facilitators solicited answers from the participants, as well as contributing their own. Issues covered during the Q&A section included housecleaning and getting places on time. The meetings are held at 7:00pm on the fourth Thursday of the month at The Stowell Learning Center at 15192 Central Avenue in Chino (enter the business complex using El Prado Road). The next meeting will be on February 23 at 7:00pm. For more information regarding this group, check out their website at chinohillsadultadhd.wordpress.com or email them at ChinoHillsADHDAdults@gmail.com.

 

What are support groups?

They are gatherings of people who share a common concern or interest and usually focus on a specific situation or condition. They are not the same as group therapy sessions, which are a type of mental health treatment. Support groups are often formed and facilitated by a lay person with the condition, although some are led by a professional. Some groups are educational and structured with invited professional speakers, while others emphasize emotional support and shared experiences; some combine both. (mayoclinic.org)

 

What are some of the benefits of attending a support group?

  • Reduced feelings of isolation
  • Opportunity to talk openly and honestly about feelings
  • Reduced stress and/or distress
  • Clearer understanding of your situation or condition
  • Information about resources (mayoclinic.org)
