Depression and ADHD

Seeking Support in Atlanta, GA

I’m looking for a support group in the Atlanta metro area.  I found one group but the location and time conflict with my schedule.  I can’t believe there is only one in a city of this size.

I’m approaching my 50th birthday but I was diagnosed only about six months ago.  I’m taking medication but I would really like to talk to someone.  I’m not real sure private sessions would be very beneficial right now.  Before I attempt to go down that road, I want to interact with people who have been successfully managing this disorder.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You.


I too live in the Atlanta area and was also diagnosed at around 50 and share all of your expressed attitudes. I have resorted to mindfulness attempts and self education via internet. It is a handicap that makes a sometimes difficult life to begin with, even harder. For the most part I just do the best I can with what I have as do others with any handicap. It would be interesting to take part in a group and share with others. Know that you are not alone.

Thanks for your response.  I really surprised at how little help there is available for adults with ADD.  But, I really should not be surprised because people only tend to respond to what they can see.  Broken bones get lots of attention a broken mind; well, your on your own with that. 

If you ever hear of anything in the area, please post immediately.  I would love to unloaded some of this burden.

Keep hanging in there.

Hi there. I live in Atlanta also & was wondering if you had found a support group? What area do you live in? I was just wondering where the one you had found was. I am in the Marietta area. I am searching for one as well so I will share when I find something.

I am also in Atlanta (just east of town) and 50 and recently discovered this about myself. If we keep going with this thread, we will have our own group here soon.
