I don't know how many people in the Syracuse, New York area read these posts, but I think it's worth the attempt.

I have been trying to find an ADHD support group in the Syracuse area since the beginning of December. I've searched the internet, called the mental health organzations, talked with EAP, talked with my psychiatrist...

Does anyone know of a support group that meets in the Syracuse area?

I can't beleive that I'm the only person with ADHD in the Syracuse area that wants to join a support group.:confused:

I live in Rochester and have attended one of the support groups here. The adult group meets once a month; I didn't find it that applicable...for me and my situation, but their website is really great. There are a lot of good articles. The organization name is Greater Rochester ADD Association. You can type in GRADDA on your browser, or if it's allowed, here is the link:

If you want to contact me, please feel free to send a PM.

Hey I live in Jamesville, NY and I too am looking (unsuccessfully) for a support group in the area. The closest i've found so far is in Herkimer (about a 50 min drive). Let me know if you have found anything since your last post and i'll continue to search as well.

Just posting to let anyone know that I have registered with meetup.com for ADD support groups. So far there are others that have registered. If there happen to be enough maybe a group will pan out. Please, those of you in this area, sign up for meetup.com ADD support groups.:)
