ADHD Melbourne One of the many goals of ADHD Melbourne is to provide a supportive, nurturing, and fact-based educational environment online for people in Melbourne and regional Victoria with ADHD, including family members such as partners and children with ADHD. We are also aiming to significantly improve all Australian government’s and community’s acceptance and support of ADHD. ADHD Melbourne was born along side the many internet sites beginning to improve the understanding of ADHD. One of our goals is to augment and unite them. Please feel free to get in contact if you have an ADHD based organisation and would like to be part of this global movement. There are a growing number of ADHD related internet sites in the world, and in Australia several have emerged this last year alone. We are encouraged by this as ADHD is possibly the most undiagnosed mental health issue in Australia. Our belief and our goal is to freely connect and communicate as a peer to peer community in an online capacity. We started out as a Facebook page and a Facebook group by its founding members Mark Szili, Peter Scholem, and Simon Watts.

ADHD Support Group Nepean-Penrith Area Support group for parents with children with ADHD, ADD and ODD with no judgment. A place to share and vent and support each other. Every day is a struggle and so many families are going through this alone. I want to set up a bricks and mortar support group for people to come along and share their stories or vent if need be. It helps knowing we are not alone. After doing the show I was surprised how many people and family members have come up to me and shared stories that were hidden away. There is still stigma attached to ADHD and growing up with it or dealing with it and our children. We all want to raise "normal" families and sometimes the reality is so much harder. Monthly meetings at the South Penrith Neighbourhood Centre, (behind Southlands Shopping Centre)
