Our parent peer group is a friendly environment to listen to other people’s experiences of parenting school-age children and young people with ADHD, share stories and work together on understanding and finding solutions to common challenges, with a different focus each month. At a parent peer group, with the help of a facilitator, members educate each other, share life stories and compile tips and perspectives on different aspects of life with children with ADHD.
We will run sessions addressing core issues for children and young people with ADHD such as sleep, organisation, self esteem, behaviour support and parent-child relationships. In addition, we will look at self care ideas for parents.
There is limited space and this is a facilitated group, so please register to attend. All invitiations will be sent out in our monthly newsletter that you can sign up to here.
Our parent peer group is for members of our ADHD Aware Support Group mailing list. Anyone with a child or young person with ADHD, suspected ADHD or in the process of seeking a diagnosis for ADHD, is welcome. However, we ask that you do not bring anyone who is not affected by ADHD and do not bring anyone under 18. We are based in Brighton and have members from Brighton, Hove, East Sussex, surrounding areas and even further afield.
We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 19:00 until 21:00 GMT. Find the latest upcoming events on our events calendar.
Before the pandemic, these meetings were regularly held at the Brighthelm Centre, North Road, Brighton, BN1 1YD. When it is safe to do so, we will resume holding them there or in other locations around central Brighton. For the time being, these are generally held via Zoom.
Sign up is required. Join our mailing list to receive emails detailing how to sign up.
