Any support groups for adult ADHD in the Lehigh Valley?

I tried in vain to find and join an adult ADHD support group in the Lehigh Valley.  I live 25 miles north of Easton and do not want to start a group.  Please let me know.


You probably have, but I figure it’s worth a try: did you try and

I run one in the Harrisburg area, but I think that’s about 2 hours from you!

Good luck!

meow2u3: I am not aware of any groups near us. I am just south of Bethlehem. If you find one, can you please update the post?

Lynne- Would you mind sharing what’s involved in starting a group?

I live in coopersburg pa and I see I’m a little late posting to this but I was wondering if anyone had found anything close by?

I’m so sorry! I never saw your reply, Jrlabert! Initially, it was pretty easy to start my group. My local elementary School principal let me use their library for a space, and I contacted lots of local newspapers and other public publications to advertise, for free. The district pulled the plug on the space because I am a coach, and there were concerns about the conflict of interest. Long story not so short, I moved it to a local library for a fee. Eventually, found a hospital which let us use a conference room for free,  and I started a group for the support group.  We have more than 200 members on the list, but attendance really ebbs and flows and doesn’t reflect that number!  Hope that helps!
