We often bring in Clinicians and other professionals to speak to the group. Our next informal group takes place on Thursday 19th November for members of HADD. If you are not a member please come along to see what we are all about. We request a €5.00 donation for attendees to cover room hire, teas/coffees / biscuits.
The Psychology department at St Patrick’s University Hospital is offering a new group-based intervention programme, Living With ADHD, for adults diagnosed with ADHD. This is a new programme and at the moment is only available for those with insurance cover. It is hoped that this first phase will provide HADD Ireland with materials, feedback and information for adult support groups.
The Living With ADHD programme will help participants:
· To learn more about their condition with increased sense of acceptance
