The goal of this group is to help women with diagnosed or suspected ADHD to support one another. Many women either don't know they have ADHD, have been misdiagnosed or have been diagnosed later in life. Hopefully, this group will provide some insights, support, and comraderie. Plese check out the links page for more information about ADHD and women with ADHD.
After group agreements are reviewed, we have a 45-60 minute ADHD educational component. The remaining time will be for general discussion, sharing resources, and planning for the next meeting.
We meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month from 6:30 - 8:00 pm in the Small Conference Room at the Mary L. Stephans Davis Branch Library on 315 E. 14th Street, Davis, 95616. No food or drinks are allowed in the small conference room.
As an affiliate group of Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD), this ADHD support group does not endorse products, services, publications, medications or treatments. Additionally, eventhough, we meet at the Mary L. Stephens Davis Public Library, this support "group is not sponsored by Yolo County Library and the presence of this group in the meeting room does not constitute Yolo County Library's endorsement of the policies or beliefs of this group".
We ask that all attendees abide by these agreements at the meeting:
1. Anonymity (CHADD)
2. Confidentiality (I know someone who...)
3. No Judgements of self and others
4. This is a safe space
5. Compassion with self and others
6. One person talk at a time
7. No politics please
8. Please wear a mask to protect our vulnerable attendees

CHADD Local Support Groups and Affiliates Need Your Support
CHADD has local support groups in every state in the United States. Each group offers programming or information specific to their geographic area. These groups offer assistance for parents, children, young adults, adults and other stakeholders (psychologists, teachers, doctors, etc.). These groups provide advocacy, support, networking and information to those affected by AD/HD in their communities.
Ways you can support these efforts are as follows:
Donate to this effort
Contact your local CHADD group to advocate for support groups
Contact your school district to host and support newly forming or current groups
Contact your local community foundation or other foundations in your area to support this effort
