The Manhattan Adult ADD Support Group has run support sessions for adults with Attention Deficit Disorder -- or, more formally, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder -- since 1992. We are celebrating our 20th year of running meetings to help adults with ADD/ADHD. We're a public,
walk-in support group led by ADD adults. We are also fortunate to have presentations led by
some of the leading experts in ADD/ADHD. A list of Clinicians, Therapists & Professionals who have presented to our group can be found on our Past Presentations Page.
"I cannot refrain from letting you know how illuminating tonight's meeting was for me. There is something amazing about 60 strangers having such a powerful link." -- a recent participant
We have run meetings since 1992, and the result is that we have been about to for a community of adults who want to share information, ideas, network, and listen to presentations led by leading clinicians, service providers & advocates for adults who have ADD/ADHD. Everyone is welcome. Many come every month to share their experiences (successes as well as challenges).
If you have just been diagnosed, you will be especially interested in some of the literature which is available at every meeting (and free of charge:). We hope the information we have gathered helps you.
At these meetings, we're joined by adults who either have been diagnosed with ADD, or who are thinking about whether ADD might, for them, serve as an accurate diagnosis. People come for different reasons. Some find that to encounter others like them is to feel less isolated. Others value the chance to discuss their experiences in ways that are often off-limits in every day conversation. Many come to learn more, or to share knowledge and insights.
