ADHD Support in NYC
Having ADHD and living in NYC can present particular challenges, but in some ways the city makes it easier for people as well. There are a number of resources available in the city, some of which are available free of charge. If readers have others to suggest, please email Dr. Schwartz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD). A national non-profit organization run by it's own members, CHADD provides information and support to those with ADHD and their family members. The local NYC chapter frequently hosts speakers who address a wide range of topics related to ADHD.
The Manhattan Adult ADD Support Group. Another volunteer run organization that focuses on providing support and education about ADHD.
There is a support group specifically for women with ADHD that meets in Downtown Brooklyn. To join go to meetup.com and enter "women ADHD" into the search.
