ADHD/ADD and Mental Illness

​Neuroscience, brain imaging, and clinical research tell us a few important things; ADHD is not a behavior disorder. ADHD is not a mental illness. ADHD is not a specific learning disability. ADHD is, instead, a developmental impairment of the brain's self-management system known as Executive Function. 


Our group's goal is to learn about ADHD so we can understand it, treat it and control it. Fortunately, there are many benefits when you understand it. ​

This group meets Mondays from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
