University of Plymouth ADHD Support Group

Do you have ADHD? Or think that you may have?
You are very welcome to join us at the University of Plymouth ADHD Support Group.
We are a small friendly group who support each other by sharing concerns, good tips, ideas, experiences, etc. Each session has a more formal time where we focus on one main topic, e.g. time management, dealing with stress, etc. Sometimes a visiting speaker comes in to lead this part. This is followed by a less structured time where the conversation can cover a range of ADHD-related issues.
Sessions will not be running in semester one 2022.
If you have any questions please contact: studentservices@plymouth.ac.uk
