These groups are intended to be open and welcoming environments where people can discuss issues they have and seek support and advice with comfort and confidentiality.
ADULT ADHD NI AT A GLANCE
A Bit of Background
Adult ADHD NI has been set up to support adults with ADHD in Northern Ireland. The motivation for starting the organization came from identifying the lack of services for ADHD adults in Northern Ireland. Our purpose is to create awareness of ADHD in adulthood, and to advance the education of professionals/public at a local and national level to ensure that all adults with ADHD regardless of age, health, ethnicity, socio-economic status or religion have fair and equitable access to health, social, employment, and other services needed. We Provide Support groups. The purpose of a group is to provide information and support to Adults affected by ADHD (this includes parents of children with ADHD). Thus enabling them to enhance their lives and reach their full potential. We provide one to one support which is an effective approach to dealing with issues that arise with ADHD adults and support individuals to manage their condition more effectively. We provide Information Sessions to relevant agencies such as schools and colleges creating awareness and offering guidance on the challenges of ADHD. We have already supported many adults affected by ADHD throughout all of Northern Ireland and we have advocated on behalf of all people with ADHD in Northern Ireland to ensure adequate services are available to everyone. We also continue to promote and support research into Adult ADHD.
