ADHD in Illinois

Proposed Support Group

I am interested in starting a support group for the new Lenox/mokena/ frankfort/ Joliet/ orland and surrounding areas. There are no groups nearby. I have two children with ADHD.



I am from Joliet and would like to join a support for our area.  I have one child with ADHD .  Thanks

How old is your child? I’m trying to start an official CHADD group too.

@cam, I responded to your post on the other forum. The first person on this post never replied. Please message me if you are interested in talking more! I am trying really hard to get something going. I really could use the support!!!

If anyone interested could PM me with their emails, I will keep them in the loop. I an trying to start a CHADD group, but I need a co-leader, and one other person, per CHADD rules. Anyone interested?

Can you please let me know if a group was ever established in the Joliet area?  I live in Naperville but would be willing to drive….

I live in frankfort/Mokena area and I am looking for a support group. I have a teenage girl that has ADD and is finding it very hard to make friends. Please if anyone knows a group would you let me know. I am worried about her high school years.
