WHO WE ARE
We are a not-for-profit grassroots organization run by people who know the issues of ADHD because we all have it. From the vision of Sandy Slade we have been working for over a year now to help people with and affected by ADHD in Prince Edward Island. Our group's mission is to support Islanders with ADHD and their loved ones through education, advocacy, and peer support. Our goal is not just to help each other survive, but to see our fellow ADHDers thrive!
WHAT WE DO
Adult ADHD Support Group:
Our organization started with a weekly support group for adults with ADHD and that remains at the core of what we do. Our weekly meetings are open to people with ADHD, those who think they might have ADHD, loved ones of someone with ADHD and those who simply have questions about ADHD. We share support, resources and tips as well as providing an accepting environment where people with ADHD can feel comfortable.
Parents' Support Group:
Our support group for parents of children with ADHD has started and is being spearheaded by board member Shelley Hanson from our Facebook Group. This group has been designed based feedback obtained from our Parents Survey and is very much a support system 'by parents, for parents'.
ADHD PEI maintains and ever growing list of resources related to ADHD. You can find the most recent list by following the 'Resources' link along the top bar.
ADHD PEI runs two Facebook groups. 'ADHD PEI' is our public facing page, and a private page called 'ADHD PEI Support Group'. The ADHD PEI Group is open to everyone whose life is touched by ADHD or who has an interest in ADHD. By keeping the page reserved for people with a vested interest in ADHD we are able to have more in-depth discussions and provide support for each other.
ADHD PEI has a twitter page where we share relevant and fun information about ADHD.
As of 2021 our Newsletter format has changed. We now put out a quarterly newsletter, each one giving updates on events and new developments within our organization as well as an update letter from our CEO Sandy Slade and a personal story from one of our members. If you would like to subscribe to our newsletter you can do so here.
As we get adjusted to the new normal with COVID we are starting to move forward with some of our awesome ideas. Please watch our events page for details!
