Our Mission is to Support Adults with ADHD

Neurodiverse peer support groups for Brighton, Hove & beyond.

ADHD Aware is a small organisation based in Brighton which has been run by volunteers for the last 9 years, supporting adults living with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). With this new website, we aim to offer support for adult ADHD both locally and nationally.

We hold five sessions each month all booked through Eventbrite and on Zoom: Peer Support Drop-in; ADHD Group discussion; Supporting Partners; Supporting parents of School Age Children and Young People; Supporting Parents of Young Adults (18-24)

We organise the drop-in support groups so that we can all relax in the company of people who understand one-another. We share information and ideas with the chance to speak confidentially. The facilitated discussion groups are an opportunity for our members to come together and share information, advice and personal experiences around an agreed topic, with the potential to tackle some of the core issues of living with ADHD.

For more information about our drop-in support group meetings, please see the Support Group Meetings pages.

Our aim is to show our members they are not alone.

Testimonials

“The group has made me feel much less isolated. Spending time with a group of neurodiverse people is a very reassuring break from normal life where you are somewhat of an outsider."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Volunteering at ADHD Aware has helped me to shrug the feeling of helplessness that I'd been suffering in silence with.

When I see the positive impact I can have on people by giving them the right bit of advice or often just by listening to them, it gives me a sense of purpose."

"I've found by coming together to share our knowledge and experiences of our condition, I'm far better at understanding and supporting myself and those around me."

The understanding and compassion of the fellow volunteers at ADHD Aware removed that anxiety, allowing me to focus on the task at hand instead of just worrying and getting frustrated about my weaknesses.

“It has helped me live to positively with ADHD. The group helps me to understand me.”
