ADHD Skills Support Group

About the group

Do you have ADHD or do you think you might have ADHD? If so, this in-person skills-based support group may be what you are looking for. This is a non-clinical, non-diagnostic group for students who are struggling with executive functioning concerns. An ADHD diagnosis is not required to join this group.

Topics will include:

  • What is your cognitive style: strengths and struggles
  • How to sharpen memory and manage distractions
  • How to cope with emotions and nurture self-compassion
  • Planning, procrastination, and prioritization
  • Getting unstuck: how to start and switch tasks
  • Strengths and values

Group sessions are standalone. You can join at any time, and you are encouraged to attend as many sessions as you find helpful.


Group sessions will be held in person at UBC Counselling Services. Students will need to be on campus in order to participate in the group.

We recognize the unique individual needs of each student and will provide alternate options if group programming is not an appropriate referral option or fit.
