Our group discussions are a friendly environment to listen to other people’s experiences of living with ADHD, share your own stories and work together on solutions to common challenges we face in our society, with a different focus each month. At a group discussion, with the help of a professional facilitator members educate each other, share life stories and compile tips and perspectives on different aspects of life with ADHD.
We have run sessions addressing core issues of living with ADHD such as sleep, organisation, coping strategies, medication choices and managing relationships. In addition, we have run more exploratory sessions on topics such as: ADHD and women, LGBTQIA+ and gender; ADHD and neurodiversity, mental health and co-occurring conditions; ADHD and coming to terms with a diagnosis. Our group discussion topics are decided by members so we can ensure we are relevant and addressing real-world contemporary issues.
There is limited space and this is a facilitated discussion group, so please register to attend.
Our group discussions are for members of our ADHD Aware Support Group mailing list. Anyone with ADHD, or in the process of seeking a diagnosis for ADHD, is welcome. You do not need a diagnosis, but you must be seeking a diagnosis if you do not have one. However we ask that you do not bring anyone who is not affected by ADHD and do not bring anyone under 18. If you are questioning if you have ADHD, instead try our drop-in. If you do not have ADHD and are not questioning, see our friends, family and partners meeting. We are based in Brighton and have members from Brighton, Hove, East Sussex, surrounding areas and even further afield.
We meet on the 4th Tuesday of each month from 7pm-9:30pm.
Brighthelm Centre, North Road, Brighton, BN1 1YD.
For those who wish to, at 9:30pm we go to the nearby Battle of Trafalgar Pub.
Sign up is required. Join our mailing list to receive emails detailing how to sign up.
Discussion groups provide real insight into how people with ADHD live. There is a chance to learn about the latest ADHD info from our volunteer team, as well as hear from people from all walks of life discuss shared aspects of ADHD. People say that discussion groups give them a real chance to receive help and to help others. See more reasons to attend a support group session by clicking here.
